What our participants say about the count

I think it is a wonderful initiative, to connect the community, and encourage our awareness of the birds in our own backyards.

A great idea and very helpful app (that I use now, even when not doing the bird count).

A fun and relaxing activity to do from home or in our local area. Added bonus of contributing to science and realising just how diverse our local birdlife is.
