Geelong Field Naturalists Club
After a COVID enforced hiatus, we are organising, in association with BirdLife Australia, the Challenge Bird Count (CBC) for 2022. In the years prior to COVID it was becoming increasingly difficult to have enough people participating across two teams, even with separate weekends. So, it has been decided to run the CBC alternating, year about, between our two regular routes (1. Brisbane Ranges/You Yangs and 2. Bellarine Peninsula). We hope this will enable more people to participate for one whole or part day.
This bird-filled day is a great way to learn more about our local birds and their haunts and habits. We will be visiting a number of key sites to search for birds along the route starting in the Brisbane Ranges through to the You Yangs, finishing at Corio Bay. We will be entering lists to eBird Australia along the way.
Meet: Sunday 4 Dec at Steiglitz Courthouse at 6.00 a.m.
