Cheeky cockies, bin chickens and a brush turkey boom
We often don’t think of cities as havens for diversity- but they can be- and you can help record it!
Dr John Martin from Taronga Zoo leads a citizen science projects aimed at showing urban areas are home to more than bin chickens- and that these super adapters have some very innovative learning behaviours- like window knocking and door opening.
As our worlds are getting smaller, we make them bigger by paying attention to the details. This is the motto of The Urban Field Naturalist Project, a place where you can share stories about connecting with natural spaces, places, species and things.
