Sunday 9th December '07, Introduction to Birdwatching

Federal Hill, Kuala Lumpur.
Have you ever wondered what the fascination with birds is?
Are you curious to know what everone's looking at?
Join us and have a look at our beautiful feathered friends. Discover the joys of 'birding' with the Selangor Branch Bird Group's 'Introduction to Birdwatching'.

In addition to watching the birds through binoculars, we are giving you the opportunity of getting a closer look through telescopes. You can also learn about Digiscoping.

Digiscoping is an unusual type of nature photography involving a digital compact camera and a spotting scope. Today anyone can get a hands-on experience on taking photographs of the wonders of nature by putting a digital camera or even a camera phone on any spotting scope. So why bother with digiscoping? Lots of reasons. Firstly, it's fun. Practically anyone can take decent pictures of birds with little training or preparation. You can use them as backgrounds on your computer, send them to friends, or put them on your web site or in a local newsletter. Most of all, you get to enjoy the birds with less disturbance.

So, bring on your digital camera and camera phone to our digiscoping demo corner on 9th December 2007 at the carpark of Galeri Seri Perdana. We have a few spotting scopes for your try-out.

For those existing birdwatchers, this is a great opportunity to bring along friends or family members and introduce them to this activity that is enjoyed all over the World.

Pre-registration is not essential, however, we would greatly appreciate advance notice of your attendance.
We will meet at 7:15am.
If you need help with directions or wish to know more about this event, please contact Jasmine
