IIMB Campus plays host to the Global Bird Count programme on February 16

The Campus Bird Count is a coordinated effort to document the birdlife in multiple campuses across India as part of the world programme. This is an important exercise for documenting birds in places that can be overlooked but often provide valuable habitats to a variety of birds. It is also a great way of introducing many newcomers to birdwatching and monitoring – it is fun, rewarding and easy!
