The Pongal Bird Count (PBC), an initiative of the Tamilbirds network, is an annual bird monitoring programme for our state, where people observe birds for a minimum of 15 minutes and upload the sightings into bird listing and documentation platform “eBird”. The final data will provide valuable information on the distribution and abundance of the birds of Tamil Nadu. Experienced/Skilled bird watchers are requested to encourage beginners into birdwatching and also conduct brief sessions on introduction to PBC & eBird for their districts. The first Pongal Bird Count was conducted in January 2015.
Pongal Bird Count is not only for people birding in Tamil Nadu. Anyone interested in contributing for this bird count from outside Tamil Nadu (anywhere in the world) can also participate.
