MY Garden Birdwatch


The Eighth MY Garden Birdwatch 2017

The only garden bird count in Malaysia returns for its eighth year. MY Garden Birdwatch is an annual bird count that aims to keep track of the population of garden birds. Also the count is used to raise awareness of birds as an indicator of the health of our natural environment.

Participating in this count is easy. You just need to follow the guidelines to count the bird on 17 or 18 of June. Then, proceed to our website, to enter the data.

2nd MY Garden Birdwatch Bird Walk 2017


An opportunity to see and identify common garden birds is scheduled at Taman Rimba Kiara, Taman Tun Dr Ismail (GPS: 3.140399, 101.631901, next to Plaza Vads). Registration begins at 7:00 am. The walk starts promptly at 7:15am-9:00am.

Enjoy a bit of birdwatching and see the birds that frequent the park. A simple bird walk will allow you to view the birds and practice recognising and identifying the birds by name. This is a helpful exercise leading up to the MYGB survey which occurs on the 17th and 18th June, 2017. After the walk you can visit our MYGB booth which is supported by the local Resident Association. Come sign up as a counter.

It is suggested that you wear suitable attire in dull colour, sunhat and bring along a notebook and pencil/pen. Also bring along some drinking water and a light snack. This event is suitable for the whole family and those interested in learning more about Garden Birds. For details and to register, please contact Izzat Fauzi @ 011-19130271 or email

New to MYGB? Welcome to citizen science! MY Garden Birdwatch is a joint effort by new, semi-serious and hardcore birdwatchers who devote 30 minutes every June to build a databank on garden bird populations in Malaysia.

Why a databank? Well, statistics can tell us a lot on bird population trends and offer insights into the fascinating world of birds. The more sites we have, the more solid the data generated.
