National Bird Week 2014 will take place between Monday 20 October and Sunday 26 October.
The celebration of National Bird Week has its origins back in the early 1900s, when 28 October was first designated by the Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union, the predecessor of BirdLife Australia, as the first ‘Bird Day’. BirdLife Australia organises and promotes Bird Week with the goal of inspiring Australians to take action and get involved in bird conservation efforts.
As part of National Bird Week I’m giving a talk on the ecology of birds in the box-ironbark country. It’s on Saturday 18th October (11am- 12.30pm) in the Bendigo Library Reading Room – it would be lovely to see you there!
My talk is part of a diverse program of activities for National Bird Week, supported by the City of Greater Bendigo. Click here for a copy of the full program.
