Winter Bird Monitoring Program (2017-18)

This season, it is proposed to collect the birding data on a SINGLE DAY in all the routes as listed below, on Sunday, 21/01/2018. Reserve this day for the birding experience venture. 
  • A similar survey was held on 08/01/2017, in last winter, yielded 221 bird species. Totally 12 teams participated. Participants visited 69 locations spread over three districts of Mysore region. In this exercise, 46 birders counted 54,057 birds. Though, expected fewer species as Mysore region was reeling under third consecutive famine, the drying lakes offered ample rich food with minimal effort, resulted in a high count of birds and variety of species. The highlight was –ALBINO COOT, EUROPEAN BEE-EATER, SPRANGLED DRONGO, FERRUGINOUS DUCK, GREATER FLAMINGO, WHITE STORK, GADWALL, BLACK-EARED KITE, RICHARD'S PIPIT, SPOTTED REDSHANK, CURLEW SANDPIPER, SANDMARTIN, & RUDDY SHELDUCK. 
  • This year most of the tanks are full, thanks to reasonably good monsoon. Let’s hope for good birding and proceed with single day birding. 
  • Bird monitoring to be carried out as in the past. 
  • Minimum birding period is half an hour in one location. 
  • It is not a competition; observe the birds in the field for its proper identification, activity and it will fine-tune our birding skills. Note down. 
  • Intimate in advance the route planned, so that other interested birders can join the team or others can take a different route. 
  • Enter the data in “e-bird” website as soon as you are back from the day-long birding trip. Post the link on facebook/ mysorenature or the data filled form/Excel sheet for data compilation. 
  • Share your interest with your friends, especially students from life science and introduce them to field study.
