“The Bird Group understands that the local birding scene is changing and continues to morph. There has been an exponential increase in the number of bird photographers and the extensive use of the social media. The Bird Group will continue to use the social media to engage this group of bird photographers and members of the public by providing help in identification, sharing of interesting sightings, information and articles.”
