The New Zealand Garden Bird Survey runs from 26 June – 4 July this year.

To take part, select a survey location, and on one day between 26 June and 4 July look and listen for birds for one hour. Record the highest number of each species observed at one time and submit your results.

The annual survey is vital, as it tells us about the health of our environment.

This is a great project to do with the family, in your garden, school grounds or a nearby park or reserve.
