Cowra Woodland Birds - Spring Survey
The Cowra Woodland Birds Program (CWBP) aims to reverse the decline of woodland birds in the Cowra district of NSW. The Program was launched in 2001 by members of BirdLife Southern NSW, and local landholders and land managers. It has now been running for over 15 years.
The CWBP conducts quarterly bird surveys at 93 sites within the shire. To date the surveys have recorded 225 bird species.
These bird and habitat surveys have helped in understanding which habitat types are critical or preferred by the different species of woodland birds. This information is then provided as general recommendations to the local landholders and land managers that will help in reversing the decline of woodland birds.
The next survey for 2018 will take place on Oct 13/14. Survey dates for 2019 are: Summer - 9/10 February; Autumn - 13/14 April; Winter - 13/14 July and Spring - 12/13 October.
