Great Backyard Bird Count 2021

12 February - 15 February

GBBC | Bird Walks & Talks (Registration form) | Resources | Contacts | Campus Bird Count 2021

NEW: GBBC & CBC 2021 Final Results
Preliminary Report

What

GBBC India is the Indian implementation of the global Great Backyard Bird Count, which runs for 4 days every February. Indian birders have participated in the GBBC since the event went worldwide in 2013.

Why

Most importantly, it’s fun! But there is a serious aspect as well. These annual snapshots of bird populations help answer a variety of important questions, including how birds are distributed across the country, how they are affected by changes in habitat and weather, and whether populations and distributions might be changing from year to year. In addition, you can use the opportunity of this event to get others involved in birding, to reach out to the general public, or even to run a local or regional project!

If you live or work on campus, then you may be interested in the Campus Bird Count that runs alongside.

When

12-15 February 2021

How

Go birding for at least 15 min, listing and counting all the species you see. It doesn’t matter if you can’t identify every single species — what you can identify is good enough! Login to www.ebird.org/india and submit your species list. For those new to eBird, read the brief description, and do go through our detailed beginner’s guide; create an account and start using eBird right away to get used to the platform.
Who GBBC India is coordinated by the Bird Count India collective, a coming-together of a number of groups and organisations that are interested in birds, nature and conservation. Do join us!

The 2020 edition of the GBBC engaged over 2000 birders who uploaded over 24,966 checklists and reported 924 species.

Nice move BIRD COUNT INDIA , to make a mass movement & to generate community – participation. A time will come when we will see people avoiding porching & killing BUT the BHEEL&KHANABADOSE Whose livelihood is dependent on bird killing has to be included in main stream. Good news is that they also are moving towards better options BUT We “the white collars “should avoid purchasing these lovely STRESS-BUSTERS !!

While we are managing bird counts at Jalandhar and nearby area, our focus is to attract new birders.
My NGO “Aashray” also works in rehabilitation of stray and injured birds.
