COG Woodland Bird Monitoring Project

Canberra Ornithologists Group monitors woodland birds at 14 locations (134 monitoring sites) in the key woodland corridors around Canberra, including reserve and leasehold areas. Surveys of birds are done seasonally, four times a year, and some sites in the Project have been monitored for 8 to 10 years.

This data is used for a variety of conservation related purposes, including by Government, students, researchers, and community groups. For example, this data informed the development of the ACT Lowland Woodland Conservation Strategy, the blueprint for managing grassy woodlands and their fauna in the ACT. Data collected from the project is analysed for trends and reported in COGs journal, Canberra Bird Notes.
