One of the most common ways people interact with birds is by providing food and water.
The Australian Bird Feeding and Watering Study is a national Citizen Science initiative being conducted by researchers at Deakin University and Griffith University. It s focus is on the interactions people have with birds in their own backyards, as this can have a huge impact on bird diversity and abundance.
The study entered its third week during 15-23 August but the team is still very keen to invite new participants before it closes on August 28 .
If you provide food and/or water for birds and would like to take part, please visit their website.
