What

The Campus Bird Count is a sub-event of the larger Great Backyard Bird Count. It is a coordinated effort to document the birdlife in multiple campuses across India. By “campus”, we include campuses of educational and training institutions, government institutions, research stations, corporate campuses, etc. Broadly speaking, any moderate to large sized area where people study, work or live.

Why

Outside protected areas, campuses in India often contain surprisingly large amounts of important habitat for birds and other wildlife, even in urban areas. Documenting this wildlife is therefore important and it’s also fun and relatively easy!

When

18-21 February 2022

How

Try and get a group of bird enthusiasts (from within or even outside your campus), and organize yourselves in such a way that you cover all the different areas and habitats that your campus contains. The protocol is quite flexible: basically, you would walk around, and collect as many 15-minute ‘complete’ lists as possible. In other words, each 15 min list should contain all species detected in that time period. Upload these lists to eBird, just as the general protocol for GBBC describes.

Many campuses are closed due to the pandemic. However, if your campus is open or if you live on a campus of any form and are able to venture outdoors, do consider taking part in the Campus Bird Count.

Please ensure that you adhere to COVID-19 related instructions by your campus, central and local authorities.

Register your campus on the next page. (Note: Registrations are now closed)
