Natur&Ëmwelt invites you to identify all the species of birds that can be observed around us as well as their respective numbers. To communicate the data indicated, you must use the online form (active at the time of the census) or in PDF format, on the website naturemwelt.lu. The action pays particular attention to the most common bird species observed in gardens and around houses in winter. Using the annual census, the populations of characterized species in urban areas can be estimated, which makes it possible to establish population trends (increase or decrease, for example).
In 2021, the great tit retained its first place. It was observed in 82% of Luxembourg gardens, which makes it the most frequent species. Just behind, the common blackbird was seen in 80% of the gardens. The other species frequently encountered are the house sparrow (75%), the blue tit (75%) and the robin (69%). The sociable house sparrow was once the most regular visitor with a total of 6,712 individuals. Which bird will be in first place this year? To find out, take part in the census and be among the winners drawn by natur&ëmwelt. The deadline for sending the results of the census weekend is February 11.
