The advent of digital cameras and more books on birds of our region, coupled with the availability of a wider choice of birding optics, have seen a rapid growth in interest in birds and bird photography.
The MNS Perak Bird Group (BG) Committee feels that it is now timely to have a list of Perak members who have an interest in birds The formalisation of MNS Perak Birding Special Interest Group (SIG) will assist BG Committee in efficient dispatching of bird-related information to interested members, besides providing birders with an avenue to discuss bird issues with BG Committee and to exchange information with like-minded members.
BG Committee also plans to have Birding SIG members elect the BG Committee for the next term. So far, the BG Co-ordinator and Committee have been formed by members volunteering themselves to serve in the Committee. It is hoped that an open election can be held next year so that all birders can determine for themselves who should lead the Birding SIG.
BG Committee would like to invite all Perak birders to register with the Birding SIG. However, those who have only a slight interest in birds and new members who want to learn more about birds and birding are also encouraged to register. Please contact BG Co-ordinator Lim Kim Chye (email: firstname.lastname@example.org or h/ph 016-553 8431) to register with the Birding SIG.
