A little dose of attention to our garden birds

Join Malaysia's Garden Bird Survey this weekend (15 - 16 June). It's so simple, anyone can do it. It'll be a fantastic family event and one that will get kids excited about nature.


On either 15th or 16th June 2013, spend 30 minutes (no more, no less!) at a green patch (e.g. park, garden or playground) near you and jot down the birds that you see.

Submit your data on the My Garden Bird Watch website ( within 2 weeks of the count date. That’s it. Check this website for the survey results in August/ September. By the way, submissions which are considered valid (e.g. meets the time and date requirement, acceptable list of birds) will be in the running for special prizes! Prizes include, 3 winners X One pair binoculars & MNS membership subscription for a year AND 2 winners X Guide to Birds of Johor & Suara Enggang subscription for a year. Winners will be notified via email or phone in September.

MY GARDEN BIRDWATCH is a non-profit project run by the Bird Conservation Council (BCC) of the Malaysian Nature Society and sustained by volunteers of various backgrounds who care for birds and their habitat. MYGB is grateful for the financial assistance from Wild Asia (2010), Tan Kean Cheong Bird Conservation Memorial Fund (2011 & 2012) and Schmidt Marketing, Malaysia (2012 & 2013).
