Great fun to participate in. Bird index searching needs help though!

I installed this because the description lead me to believe it'd enable me to count birds all the way off in Australia from here in Canada. But no—it turns out you must actually travel to Australia, at your own expense, before you can use it in any meaningful way. Well, it was a long, expensive trip—but once I arrived, checked into my hotel, then made my way out to the countryside, I could count birds just fine. I'm withholding one star because the guy next to me on the plane kept snoring.

Delighted to be taking part in the survey, its a great idea. The app helps greatly to identify birds, it takes time to scroll through all the birds to identify the common species found in our area. Could the ducks water foul birds etc be separated in their own class as of birds of prey to make identification of the garden species quicker and easier. also time frame of 20 minutes isn't very long. Thank you, keep up the great work, Mark.

Does exactly what it is meant to do with a very intuitive interface. Only suggestion is it would be handy to be able to port the observation data over to the main BirdLife Aus app as well. Would be easy enough to mark the data as part of the survey so there is no double count.

looked forward to participating in this year's count but app only once found my address, it wouldn't acknowledge manual imput and because of that I couldn't actually do any more counts. greatly disappointing as where I live we have a huge range of bird life. Maybe the app needs to be changed so once an address is manually entered it allows you to proceed to the count and send the information later when there is a good internet connection. much of Australia has poor or no internet connection.

Didn't work for me. Refused to accept my address or show any map. Maybe there are extra requirements for use not mentioned by the developer.

About this app

BirdLife Australia has created the Aussie Backyard Bird Count app for you to take part in Australia’s first nationwide bird survey. For one week each year near the end of October, as part of National Bird Week, join thousands of people as they get to know their local birds and help us discover how our birds are getting on. It only takes 20 minutes in your backyard, neighbourhood park, or favourite green patch to be a part of this exciting event.

All you have to do is sign-up with your name and email address, select your location on the map, and start counting. If you need help identifying birds, use the handy built-in Field Guide. While there are around 800 species of birds in Australia, the Field Guide holds just under 400 species. Try to be as general as possible when searching or typing in bird names to get the best results.

Don’t go away when the Bird Count has finished. You can use the Field Guide year round to learn more about your feathered friends.
