Thanks to all those who have already registered, and here's a reminder to all those who are still thinking of it:*REGISTRATIONS ARE STILL OPEN* and teams are in the process of being formed, so hurry and get your name in!

Remember, the BirdRace is absolutely FREE - there are no charges
whatsoever, and all participants are invited to a scrumptious dinner and a
special get-together the same evening. So go ahead and join all our
enthusiastic birders, by registering right away!!
Special Mention: Dr Asad Rahmani (Director - BNHS) and Nitin Jamdar
(Moderator - birdsofbombay egroup) have kindly agreed to be the Judges for
the forthcoming Mumbai BirdRace.
Looking forward to seeing you,
