The BirdMark portal is specially designed to accept submissions of your resightings of colour marked waders along our flyway. It supports multiple different languages, offering the possibility for volunteers and researchers to enter and submit observations both interactively or as a file.

Videos on the various ways in which you can do this are included in our Help Guides. Feedback on your observations, including a history of the birds that you have observed, will be returned to you within a couple of days of submitting your data.

With the launch of this site we hope to further boost the reporting of marked shorebirds, which is crucial for ongoing conservation and scientific research, informing on the birds’ population dynamics, movements and site use.

We would love to hear your feedback, so feel free to contact awsg@iinet.net.au if you have any suggestions or queries regarding this portal.

When using the portal and notably when using some of the insights in shorebird behaviour and whereabouts that the portal provides in any publication, it would be greatly appreciated if you would consider acknowledging the BirdMark portal of the Australasian Wader Studies Group, Victorian Wader Study Group and Deakin University for providing data painstakingly collected by a legion of volunteers and professionals along the East-Asian Australasian Flyway.

By using this website and submitting your observations, you agree to our privacy policy.
