Welcome to the blog of Birdlife Northern Rivers.                                     LOGO_BLUE_CMYK_NR

In 2013 members of Tweed Bird Observers  formed a local branch of Birdlife Australia  ( under the Northern NSW Branch.   We are an enthusiastic group of bird watchers, twitchers, amateur ornithologists, and sociable folk with an appreciation for the natural world, who meet once a month.

We host regular monthly outings – held on the second Sunday of the month, start at 7.30am NSW time from February through December. Usually arranged up to six months in advance, details are provided in the member newsletter and by email.  We now also post our Activities and Outings as “Events” on the Birdlife Australia, Northern NSW events tab at:

You will find lots of content here including how to contact us. Please look around and enjoy.

    HI! We are Canadians, visiting Australia in November. We would love to join a group, or find a person, who could introduce us to birds in Australia. We have been birding for almost 10 years, but never in Australia. We will be in Sydney Oct. 25,26 Coff’s Harbour 27-Nov 1, Byron Bay Nov2-9, Mooloolaba Nov 11-15, and Innisfail 17-18, I have had a good look at this amazing website!!! but haven’t been able to pin down a group to join for a day of birding. Any help would be fantastic. (I’ve tried Birding Pals as we are members but the website is not working well at the moment…) Thanks so much, Mary and Wally Glavind, BC Canada and Mazatlan, Mexico

    I recently have become interested in the different sounds of the birds in my area. I believe I have a sooty owl in the park behind our house. Is this unusual for the Gold Coast- Ashmore.

    We just have 2 Collared Sparrowhawks in our yard. Not good for our chooks but impressive birds.
