Welcome to our new and improved BirdLife Australia website!

Thanks to our supporters, and to the science which informs our actions, we’ve achieved some incredible outcomes for threatened birds. But now, we’re facing our greatest challenge yet: Australia’s extinction crisis.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are the bird profile pages?

We are undertaking a project to update and renew the bird profile content so that it can be as up-to-date as possible. More and more of these pages will be published in the next few months. For now, you can see the live bird profiles here, and use the filters to sort through and find birds.

Filter options available on the Bird PRofile page. This allows you to search by shape, size, colour, bird family, habitat type, state/territory, distinctive feature, bird group, conservation status, and place.

Birds in Backyards can be accessed here in the meantime, which has a comprehensive list of bird profiles.
