Hi all,

A few of us from the Nature Society (Singapore) are conducting a survey of migratory bird crashes in Singapore to understand where they are most frequent, which species are the most affected, why they occur, and what can be done to better protect them. As the migratory season is now in full swing, it is expected that the number of such crashes will steadily increase across Singapore. We would appreciate if you could take a couple of minutes to fill in our online form at http://tinyurl.com/SGBirdCrash should you come across dead or injured birds in and around urban areas. Thank you very much for your participation!

If you find birds that are already dead, you should contact David Tan from NUS Bird Lab to deposit the specimens, which can then be used for research purposes.
