The global Great Backyard Bird Count 2019
<https://birdcount.in/event/gbbc2019/> is just a week away (15th-18th Feb)!
More details below.
For the *Great Backyard Bird Count*, tens of thousands of birdwatchers all
over the world will be spending these four days observing and documenting
the birds around them in order to create an annual snapshot of the state of
the world's birds.
Birders in India have been taking part in the GBBC since 2013. This year is
no different, and we hope you'll join in the effort to document our
country's birds. It's very easy-- just look for birds for at least *15
minutes* and upload your list to eBird. Repeat as often as possible during
the four days of the count. More details here
The GBBC is also a great opportunity to introduce people (children and
adults) to birding and build greater awareness of our biodiversity and its
conservation. Please do consider conducting a bird walk or giving a bird
lecture at a suitable venue. Here are some resources
<https://birdcount.in/event/gbbc2019/3/>, including a ppt and posters, that
you might find useful. If you do plan this, we request you to register your
event <https://birdcount.in/event/gbbc2019/2/> so that we can help spread
If you live, work or study on a campus of some sort, the *Campus Bird Count
<https://birdcount.in/event/cbc2019/>* may be of interest to you.
We look forward to your participation!
