Bird surveys are held six times a year, following the natural seasons' calendar in the Melbourne region and monitoring numbers and species of birds using Australian Bird Atlas survey regime. Leader is Susan Pepper, also a member of BirdLife Australia. Four areas are surveyed: the Trin Warren Tam-boore wetlands storage pond; the Wetlands treatment pond; the creekline and Skink site; and the bushland escarpment. Another site will be added from June 2016: the Ross Straw sports fields. Results are entered into the global database eBird.
Meeting place/time for Bird Surveys is: Trin Warren Tam-boore Wetlands carpark, Oak Street, Parkville West at 8:45 am. All welcome.
