World Map of Birds Global Big Day 2017

Global Big Day 2017 is on 13th May 2017, Saturday. eBird Malaysia has a featured post about GBD which can be read here. Wild Bird Club Malaysia is organizing a Day Trip to Negeri Sembilan on 14th May 2017. My last trip to Telapa Buruk was way back in 2013. My blog from this trip with friends from NS and Malacca can be read here. Cornell Lab provided World Map of Birds in conjunction with GBD 2017 and a special hashtag #eBird_GBD to spread awareness via Social Media on events happening worldwide. Am very glad to see Malaysia is included this year 2017 as part of Global Big Day albeit in Social Media news, via Facebook. Praying for good sunny weather this weekend in Malaysia:)
