Canberra and the surrounding region has the richest bird life of any Australian capital city - over two hundred species have been recorded here.

We want; to encourage interest in, and develop knowledge of, the birds of the Canberra region; to promote and co-ordinate the study of birds; to promote the conservation of native birds and their habitat.
