Great Backyard Bird Count 2020

14 Feb 2020 - 17 Feb 2020

GBBC 2020 | Bird Walks & Talks (Registration form) | Resources | Contacts | Campus Bird Count 2020

Bird Walks & Talks

The basic activity in the GBBC is to go outdoors (anywhere you wish, including your balcony, college campus or local park), spend at least 15 minutes watching birds, and upload your birdlist(s) to eBird. But beyond that, the GBBC is a great opportunity to conduct events in your locality, city or state. Here are some ideas:

1. Conduct a bird walk

Get some friends together and go out birding. Or announce a birdwatching event that is open to the public. A wetland of some sort is a particularly good place to conduct such an event because waterbirds are often easily observable. With smaller, more enthusiastic groups, a bird walk through scrub or woodland is also feasible. If you need help with ideas or materials, please let us know.

2. Talk about birds at a school or college

Contact a local educational institution to see whether you can talk to their students about birds. You can use the powerpoint presentation about birds and birdwatching and if needed the same presentation in Telugu can be found here here.

You could also take the students on a bird walk on the campus. If you find some students are particularly interested, ask them to create eBird accounts and ‘share’ the session’s birdlist with them.


3. Take part in the Campus Bird Count

If you study, work or live on a campus of any form, do consider taking part in the Campus Bird Count.
