Between the on-going Bird of the Day series and many ornithologically focused posts, our interest in birds can’t be breaking news to any La Paz Group reader. We’re constantly hearing more about the importance of citizen science in all sorts of ecosystems, but with both birding and Kerala so close to our hearts we’re thrilled to applaud the enthusiasm of the Bird Count India community.
We thank the many photographers who contribute to this site, and with the upcoming Great Backyard Bird Count in February and the Global Big Day in May, they’ll have ample opportunity to capture avian images – as if any of them need an excuse! The Indian birding community involvement has been in the top 3 slots ever since the GBBC went global, and the chart above shows Kerala leading the charge in lists submitted.
Stay tuned for more on the upcoming counts here!
