Home About us Sightings Trip reports Bulletin Contact Us



The Birdwatcher's Club of Pakistan (BCP) was founded in summer 2005 by a group of dedicated birdwatchers in Pakistan to conserve the diverse and beautiful avifauna of Pakistan. Our aim is to help promote and encourage bird watching among fellow birders who are interested in the birds of Pakistan and the neighboring countries.

BCP's Aims:

  • to help promote and encourage bird watching among fellow birders who are interested in the birds of Pakistan and the neighboring countries

  • to work for the conservation of threatened birds in Pakistan

  • to organize birding trips for interested birders in Pakistan and around the world

  • to interact and coordinate with other birding clubs in the region for bird conservation

  • to collect and publish information on the birds of Pakistan

What Region Does the Club Cover?
Pakistan's incredibly diverse environment from the highest mountains on earth to burning deserts, rich plains, endless rivers and 1050 km coastline supports more than 700 species of resident and migrant birds. BCP is a regional country club that covers mostly regions that fall within the limits of Pakistan. These include the three zoogeographical regions (Palaearctic, Indo-Malayan and Ethiopian) that overlap along the length and breath of Pakistan. One of the major bird migration route known as International Migratory Birds' Route Number 4 also passes through Pakistan. It is also called the Green Route or Indus Flyway. Out of seven flyways, Indus Flyway is one of the busiest routes.

BCP Committee:

  • Mr. Muhammad Saad N Qaisrani (Founder and Chairman)

  • Mr. Ahmer Ali Rizvi (Founder and Co Chair)

  • Mr. Nausherwan Sarshar Ahmed (Founder and Chairman Publications and Web development)

  • Mr. Sarfraz Hayat ( Founder, Promotions and Advertising)

  • Mr. T.R Aashi (Meetings, Promotions and Advertising)

  • Ms. Sidra Kamran (Meetings, Promotions and Advertising)


BCP extends its special thanks to all the writers and photographers who contribute their work to The Birdwatcher's Club of Pakistan.
