We are organising a family-friendly webinar on the birds found in Kathmandu Valley to encourage more people to take up birdwatching to build interest in and contribute to bird conservation. The webinar will be led by Bird Conservation Nepal (BCN) and will include expert advice on getting started with birdwatching in and around Kathmandu Valley.

The webinar will cover:

- What species of birds that can be found in and around Kathmandu Valley?

- Where and when can you see these birds?

- Which are the most at risk and what are the primary reasons for their endangerment?

- Where can you access more information about the birds of Kathmandu/Nepal?

- Tips on birdwatching and how to get started
