Great Backyard Bird Count


The Great Backyard Bird Count is a global bird count, during which thousands of birdwatchers all across the world look for birds for four days in February each year. It’s great fun; and it helps create a snapshot of where birds are.

In India, we have been marking the GBBC since 2013, and participation has grown in leaps and bounds.

This year, the GBBC is on 15-18 February
The Campus Bird Count will take place on the same dates
