Originally developed in 2005, the Birdata website provided an online platform for volunteers and researchers to enter bird survey data and gain feedback about their surveys. This major revamp of Birdata has allowed us to offer this critical conservation tool in the form of a handy, easy-to-use app.

The Birdata mobile app is intended to facilitate simple data entry in the field on mobile devices and provides basic reporting statistics.

Visit the Birdata web portal ( for extended reporting and data management functionality.

Analysis of structured monitoring surveys in Birdata feeds directly into the State of Australia’s Birds report series. These reports are the go-to guide on the status of Australia’s bird populations, designed to inform decision making on land management, and direct conservation and policy that affects Australia’s birds and biodiversity.

Can you use it for Birding lists? Yes. Birdata is primarily a tool for structured monitoring, however you can use Birdata to enter and store birding trip lists (e.g. bird lists which are collected over expanded areas without conforming to scientific standards). Please ensure that data such as this is coded as “Bird List” in the “Survey type” field on the details page.

I very much wanted to participate in the Birds on Backyards surveys. And this app is a great idea. However, there are many questions to answer under Site Details and there is no way to save the details for the next survey, so we need to re-enter each time. This is enough to make me give up.

Great concept!

I did the Great Aussie Bird Count for the first time this year and I loved doing the surveys, appreciating our local birds and contributing to citizen science. My only regret was that it only lasted a week. I was so happy to discover the bird data app and the fact that I can contribute a bird survey as often as I like and at any time of the year!

Thank you to the app developers and the scientists who use our results to help look after our amazing birds.

Love the idea but the app has issues

The layout of the app is easy to use, but I can’t record any data as it’s coming up with error saying ‘no location name recorded.’ I’ve turned location services on, I’ve tried checking to see if my location is shown on the map, but it’s still coming up with an error and won’t give me any way to manually input the location name.
