The cars will be flagged off early in the morning and report back at sunset, which is about 12 hours of birding.  Each car will be given a logbook containing a list of birds found in our region as also names of places and locations that you can visit. You are however free to go wherever you want, as long as you keep within a radius of about 50-60 kms around Hyderabad. You have to tick mark all the bird species that you see and where you saw it. The logbooks have to be surrendered to the judges in the evening for their scrutiny.   The criteria are that you try and record as many bird species as possible to win the first prize.  There will be other prizes also like Bird of the Day, Dip of the Day, etc.

We of course expect total honesty and integrity of the participants.  Despite the rules, the main purpose is to have loads of fun.


The evening function will start by about 7:00 pm. The Venue will be announced Shortly. There would be a few talks by the organizers to kick off the get-together and maybe a short speech by the Chief Guest. All Captains will also be required to speak for Two minutes each recounting the team’s experience for the day. We expect you to make this as lively and funny as possible!  This will be followed by the prize distribution and dinner for all the participants.

The last date for receiving the entries is 01.02.2013.
