Winter Bird Monitoring Program (2021-22)

SINGLE-DAY MID-WINTER BIRD CENSUS -09/01/2022: As in the previous years, we will go for a single day bird census on 09/01/2022. Please keep a day free for this season's bird census.

      • It is not a competition; observe the birds in the field for their 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 /can take a different route. Try to have a minimum of TWO MEMBERS for any unknown eventuality and better documentation. 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 of, then share with MMCBCG (User name, for easy compilation) and in the comments section add 'AWC 2022'.

      • Share your interest with your friends, especially students from life science and introduce them to field study.

      • Previous years data can be seen at https://www.mysorenature.org/bird-monitoring-program/winter-bird-monitoring-program

      • Due to copious rain spread over 6 months, all the irrigation tanks are full and overflowing …so it’s challenging to find birds!

      • Don’t forget that we are in COVID-19 CRISIS, take necessary care
