It is again time to pay attention to birds around us as global Great Backyard Bird Count(GBBC) is held on 15th – 18th of February http://gbbc.birdcount.org/. Participating GBBC is 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.
Through its GardenBirdWatch initiative, FOGSL invites all Sri Lankan birders to participate in this event joining tens of thousands of birdwatchers all over the world to create an annual snapshot of the state of the world’s birds. We also invite you to share a link of your eBird record on the GBBC FB event.
[If you find it difficult to use eBird, atleast make a list of birds seen around you within a specific time with numbers seen/heard and email firstname.lastname@example.org or post details on the event page on FB. Be free to call me on 0718440144 for any assistance on using eBird]
Get your kids involved and be free to invite your friends too…!!
