The Big Bird Race 2013 will be held on 2 February 2013 (Saturday) - International Wetlands Day, from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Each team will be made up of four members who must participate in the entire Race: no replacements of individuals can be made during the race period. An additional non-bird watching driver and recorder are permitted to accompany each team. Teams will aim to record as many birds as they see – anywhere in Hong Kong – within the 12-hour period. Teams may start anywhere they choose, but must finish in the car park of Mai Po Nature Reserve.

Only species listed in either Categories A to D of The Avifauna of Hong Kong, (Carey et al. 2001), the Big Bird Race 2013 logbook, or those accepted by the Adjudicator will form part of the count, subject to the following:
  1. Birds must be unrestrained.
  2. Oiled or sick birds will not be counted.
  3. Species which have obviously been released from captivity within a few days of the Race will not be counted.
  4. All species must be recorded within the territory of Hong Kong SAR.
  5. Only species positively identified are acceptable.
  6. Attracting birds with tape-recorders or any digital audio equipment is prohibited.
The details of team enrolment will be provided in due course. Please visit our website for the latest updates.

To encourage participation and support, a number of awards and exciting prizes will be presented to participating teams, including:
  • Most Birds Seen
  • Bird of the Day
  • Most Wetland Birds Seen
  • Dip of the Day
