Garden bird list after 7 years: 127 species

I have just completed 7 years of recording birds around my suburban home for the Canberra Garden Bird Survey. For the Garden Bird Survey (GBS), participants survey a site of about 3 hectares around or near their home. The survey is continuous, and recorded in weeks. My site extends beyond my garden to include a stretch of nearby Ginninderra Creek, so I get a lot of water birds.

Updated: Now 133 species in nearly 8 years.
