Nature Know-how: Birds along the brook

Ever wondered what bird it is making that particular call in your backyard?  What does it look like? Its species? Its Noongar name? And what does its nest look like?  More importantly, how you can create habitat for it in your garden?

Join Perth Hills ornithologist Simon Cherriman for a guided nature-walk on Noongar Country at Susannah Brook Lakes in Gidgegannup from 8 am to 10 am on Saturday 3 September.

The walk will follow 1.5km of existing bush tracks and will focus on teaching participants how to spot and identify both bush and water-bird species. Also, how to record and submit information using BirdLife Australia’s Birdata App.

Simon is among 51 WA Parks Foundation Park Ambassadors. Passionate about wildlife and the environment, he established iNSiGHT Ornithology in 2008 to engage and inspire people about the environment, mainly through the science of birds.

Simon is available to provide environmental services to schools and environmental interest groups, individuals, consultants and government departments.

His Birds Along the Brook walk is presented as part of Nature Know-How, a series of free programs hosted across the City of Swan’s libraries and bushland reserves. Spaces are limited, so please book in at this link.
