Bird app taking flight

The Killarney birds app is taking flight.

By Dominique Tassell

Killarney Bushcare is launching a new Bird App on Saturday 16 October at the Killarney Senior Citizens, open to everyone in the community.

After the launch was pushed back, it is now set to go ahead and will be attended by Southern Downs Regional Council Mayor, Vic Pennisi, as well as Sheena Gilman and Callan Alexander from Birdlife Australia.

The launch will provide information on how to download and use the app, and attendees will also get to hear about our local birdlife from the experts.

A field trip to look at birds will also be available to attendees, and those interested are encouraged a pack a picnic lunch.

Killarney Bushcare is a subgroup of the Condamine Headwaters Landcare Group, whose focus is on maintaining the biodiversity and health of the local environment.

The group works in and around Killarney, Queen Mary Falls and the Cambanoora Gorge. Their projects are undertaken on both public and on private land. This includes everything from seed saving and propagation to planting, mulching and weeding.

The app is free and you can help improve it by submitting photos and exploring maps.
