Bird Watching Association

The HKBWS was founded in 1957, and is now an active and fast-growing society with a membership of around 600 from Hong Kong and overseas. It publishes a quarterly bulletin and an annual Bird Report. The society runs regular field outings in Hong Kong throughout the year, led by experienced locals and all members are welcome to join. Sometimes groups from the Society visit the People's Republic of China and other places in the region on bird watching trips. Members participate in waterfowl counts throughout the year. The Society has also set up a project fund, through the funding, another hide off Mai Po boardwalk has built in 1996. The fund has also support updating work of the "Annoated Checklist in Hong Kong" and the set up of "HKBWS China Conservation Fund".

The Society runs an ornithological library containing various useful publications, including trip reports of birding visits into China and other Asian destinations. It is occasionally able to offer attractive discounts to members on selected new book titles.

In the past few years, we have organized series of activities with more than 20 organizations. You may click HKBWS Profolio to know more about the details.
