State of NZ Garden Birds 2017 | Reports

Birds act as ‘backyard barometers’ – telling us about the health of the environment we live in. They are signalling significant changes in our environment over the last 11 years. We should be listening.

Using cutting-edge techniques, Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research has distilled a substantial information base – bird counts gathered by New Zealanders from over 31,000 garden surveys since 2007 – into simple but powerful metrics.

Explore how bird counts have changed nationally and in your region since 2007.
