The Birdwatchers' Field Club of Bangalore is a birdwatching club in Bangalore[1] founded in the 1970s.



The group has been active in conducting mid-winter waterfowl censuses. The club was also involved in a survey of wetlands around Bangalore in collaboration with the Forest Department of the Karnataka state and was involved in a comprehensive survey of water quality parameters including chemical, physical and biological status. The results of this survey helped in the creation of action plans for wetland conservation and have helped in highlighting the roles of wetlands in cities.[2]


An informal organization, it meets every second Sunday of the month at 7:30 AM in the Lalbagh Glass House. No membership fees or other formalities are needed to be a part of the group. Other trips happen at the Hebbal Lake on the 1st Sunday of every month at 7:30 AM and near Bannerghatta National Park on the 3rd Sunday of every month at 6:30 AM. Intimations for the trips are made on the email discussion group.

Birds in the region

Nearly 350 species of birds have been recorded from the Bangalore region[3] of which around 60 species may be seen with ease.[citation needed]
