Join COG today and help us care for Canberra’s birds

Canberra and the surrounding region has the richest bird life of any Australian capital city – over two hundred species have been recorded here. From our largest bird, the Emu, to the smallest, the Weebill, the birds of Canberra present an ever-changing kaleidoscope of sizes, shapes, colours and sounds.

Objects and Purposes

  • 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.
