Bird, other fauna, and vegetation surveys

Southern Birding Services conducts surveys across all habitats. We specialise in bird surveys across arid inland areas, freshwater rivers and wetlands, and coastal environments. In many ecosystems, birds are at the top of the foodchain and therefore their numbers and distribution are an important indicator for habitat quality and allow identification of management priorities, the meeting of legislative approvals, design and rollout of projects, resource planning to name a few. In addition to bird surveys, we can also undertake surveys of other fauna as well as vegetation.

Southern Birding Services is a renowned expert in both designing and undertaking biological surveys and monitoring programs of which birds are usually a significant, if not the only, component.

Our customers are as diverse as the species that we survey, covering industries such as mining, NRM, infrastructure, transport, energy, conservation, both public and private.

Our staff are expert ecologists with a variety of specialisations to meet any project scope.

Southern Birding Services maintains a range of equipment including fully fitted-out field vehicles and specialised survey gear, sound identification recorders, and an extensive GIS system.
