Garden Birds Survey in New Zealand
Garden bird surveys have been conducted regularly in many countries around the world, some of them for many years. Here in Australia there are several variations on this theme. The surveys in Canberra gardens have been going for over 20 years, I believe. (Readers – please correct me if I’m wrong by leaving a comment.)
Birders in New Zealand have not been able to contribute to such a scheme – until now. Over this coming week the Gardens Birds Survey is being conducted in New Zealand. For the first time it is being conducted across the whole country.
