"Hello! I am A50, a globally endangered bird Black-faced Spoonbill. Not like other birds of my kind, I am one of the few lucky ones to have met researchers from HKBWS. They gave me a small and light backpack fitted with a Global Positioning System (GPS). By carrying this, the researchers of HKBWS can understand where and what habitats my species rely on and help save our population from extinction." --- A50

Let’s join the “Hong Kong Bird Watching Day cum Bird Race Fundraising Event 2023” organized by HKBWS and look for my species! Spot for leg flags and GPS trackers to get bonus points! Funds raised in this event will help HKBWS conserve wild birds and their habitats, including us Black-faced Spoonbills! Support us now!

The Hong Kong Bird Watching Day cum Bird Race Fundraising Event was first organized in 2002 and has been our yearly bird watching and fundraising event.

It is one of the key events bird watchers are looking forward to each year. However, we have suspended the event since 2020 due to COVID and this is our first year resuming the event after the lift of the pandemic regulations.
