Garden BirdWatch 2020

connecting everybody to nature everyday

Garden Bird Watch

Garden Bird Watch (GBW) is an opportunity for you and your family to step out and enjoy the nature at your own backyard. The birds that visit our garden are common birds; but they too could be declining without our notice. Some birds like Green Imperial Pigeon could be expanding its range visiting your home gardens more frequently now; but without observations we would not know.

Let’s step out, watch birds and have a note on different bird species seen (with their numbers if possible). Enter the observations on to mark your own home garden on the global ebird landscape.

Please get your colleagues and relatives too to do Garden BirdWatch. It is indeed a relaxing exercise that will also gives us an opportunity observe the nature on our own backyard.
