"You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world,
but when you're finished,
you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird...
So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing - that's what counts.
I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something."
Nobel Laureate Richard P. Feynman (1918-1988)
The above quotation has been adopted as the guiding principal of the Bird Ecology Study Group, a new bird group of the Nature Society (Singapore) since September 2005. BESGroup is committed to knowing something about that bird, not just its name.
Our objectives are as follows:
The group is looking into and documenting all issues of bird ecology, especially the inter-dependency of birds and plants (fruits, nectar, insects, pollination, seed dispersal, nesting sites and materials, etc). We also hope to study breeding behaviour - from nest to eggs to fledglings. Hopefully, a central database, freely available to members, can be set up in due course.
