The main focus of attention of the winter bird count are rifest bird species in Luxembourg's gardens. Thus, the annual census allows us to establish population trends, such as growth or decline, and to monitor the most common bird species over the years. Become active and help us collect important data about the birds in our country.

In 2016, the great tit was the most common species, being present in 90% of all the winter bird count participants' gardens. The blackbird and the blue tit were observed respectively in 88% and 80% of the gardens. The numerously most important guest in 2016 was the house sparrow though.

How has the situation evolved in 2017? Help us find out more! Become one of the 25 lucky winners who will obtain a prize after our lottery drawing. The deadline for participation is the 13 February 2017.
