Members of NSW Birding conduct quarterly surveys across a number of sites within Centennial Parklands. The surveys count all birds observed within a twenty minute time frame from specified vantage points. By fixing the time frame and the vantage point, the survey accumulates scientifically sound longitudinal data. This method does not ensure a complete list of all bird species which visit the Parklands but it does allow reliable examination of changes over time.
Centennial Parklands Bird Survey
Data have been recorded since 2009. It is held on a spreadsheet and is regularly exported to Birdata maintained by BirdLife Australia.
If you are interested in participating in these surveys, please contact the Activities Officer: firstname.lastname@example.org
