Active in the region for 30 years, BirdLife Mackay is the region's primary go to group for local bird lovers and enthusiasts.
With their dedication to creating a brighter future for Australian birds, the BirdLife Mackay team is often found monitoring seasonal changes in bird life and their habitat, as well as migratory and endangered species, including the Eungella Honeyeater - which isn’t found anywhere else in the world.
The Group will also be participating in the upcoming Eungella Bird Watching and Bushwalking Festival, taking place later this month from September 25th to October 1st. The event will be jam packed with bushwalks, local market stalls, guest lectures, exhibitions and social evenings, and would be a great opportunity to meet other bird admirers.
BirdLife Mackay has monthly outings on the first Sunday of each month, where they take group members to various bird-abundant locations throughout the region, such as Demoleyns Lagoon and Lake Barfield.
Are you a passionate bird lover? Perhaps you would like to meet and engage with people with similar interests? With spring in the air, and migratory birds in full flight, this could be the perfect time to take this passion to a new level and become a member. It’s free! You can also follow them on Facebook to keep updated with upcoming events and outings, here.
You can help BirdLife Mackay expand their database of information throughout the region, by reporting any unfamiliar birds in your area. A detailed record would ideally be inclusive of a photo, location, time of day, time of year, and weather conditions.
We appreciate all the work that you do. Congratulations BirdLife Mackay on being our first ever organisation of the month!
