Big Bird Day home page

The 2016 Big Bird Day was held on 7 February. A total of 72 teams took part this year, totalling over 435 participants across the country. Over 136 locations were covered, and in the process, 571 species were documented.

Below we have put together some summaries and results from BBD 2016. Thanks to all of you who participated and made this event a great success. See you at next year’s Big Bird Day!


The map below shows the locations of sites surveyed by BBD teams. As in the previous two years, teams were encouraged to maintain separate lists for each location they covered.

State-wise information is shown below. You can click on the name of the State or region to download csv (comma-separated value) files containing all species from that region, broken down by team ID and list. At the very bottom of the table are rows for Delhi-NCR (covering Delhi state plus surrounds), and also an All India row. You should be able to open the csv files in excel simply by double-clicking on them.

The next table shows all BBD teams, the total number of species each team observed, the States they participated from, and links to each of their individual lists. Where team names were separately specified by the teams, that name is given in the table. If no team name was given, the name of the person who uploaded the list to eBird is inserted instead. Note also that in some cases, teams birded at the same location, but split the location list into shorter time intervals — in such cases the location name may appear multiple times, but with a distinct eBird link.

Note: The links and lists contain all records reported by BBD teams; some records may be pending confirmation by eBird reviewers.
