Winter Bird Monitoring Program (2020-21)
SINGLE-DAY MID-WINTER BIRD CENSUS -10/01/2021: As in the previous years, we will go for a single day bird census on 10/01/2021. Please keep a day free for this season's bird census.
It is not a competition; observe the birds in the field for its proper identification, activity and it will fine-tune our birding skills.
Intimate in advance the route planned (Refer Excel sheet marked), so that other interested birders can join the team or others can take a different route. Try to have minimum TWO MEMBERS for any unknown eventuality. Try to cover mainly 3 or 4 highlighted locations thoroughly, other locations can be covered only if time permits
Scribble on a piece of paper OR enter it in excel OR use ‘e-bird’ before forgotten. Post the link on facebook/ mysorenature or the data filled form/Excel sheet for data compilation.
In case eBird is made use, share with MMCBCG (User name, for easy compilation) and in comments section add 'AWC 2021'.
Share your interest with your friends, especially students from life science and introduce them to field study.

Due to copious rain in major dams catchment area, all the irrigation tanks are full and overflowing with least waterbirds…so it’s challenging to find birds!
Don’t forget that we are in COVID-19 CRISIS, take necessary care
