30 Minutes Outside on World Environment Day

Dear friends of birds and trees,

The bird people* in the Malaysian Nature Society hope you have 30 minutes to
spare on the weekend of 4 OR 5 June (Saturday or Sunday) to chip in for the
2011 MY Garden Birdwatch survey.

At the end of the exercise, simply email the information to
chirp@mygardenbirdwatch.com or enter to Bird-I Witness
(www.worldbirds.org/malaysia) by 20 June 2011.

You will need to register again at the MYGB website, so that we know whether
you will be participating again.  Please try to count at the same location
as last year as continuous monitoring at the same location will yield more
meaningful data.

If you can spread this meaning event to your friends and relatives, attached
is our poster which you can use as an introduction.

Let's do our part for bird conservation.

Happy counting,
the MY Garden Birdwatch committee
