2022 NZ Garden Bird Survey

June 25th, 2022

The 2022 NZ Garden Bird Survey will be held from 25 June to 3 July!
This annual survey, run by Landcare Research and supported by Birds New Zealand, started in 2007 to study the distribution and population trends of our common garden birds. By participating you will help build a picture of how native and introduced birds are faring in our gardens, indicate which species may be in decline and guide future conservation efforts.
All instructions and an online survey form are available on

Head into your garden and become part of our team of thousands of bird counters!
