A great way to explore Bababi Djinanang (Jukes Rd Grasslands) and the birdlife in this area of Merri Creek is to attend the Bird survey.

The bird survey allows researchers to track the changes in bird populations from season to season in this major urban wildlife corridor. Your participation in helping to spot and identify birds as part of this survey contributes to the growing database on wildlife population changes affected by land use changes and a changing climate.
