This panel discussion will bring a whole wealth of experiences that the panellists have shared with habitats in the city, while birdwatching decades ago, and the current state of these habitats. The panel will reminisce about places they used to frequent, how these places are now, the diversity and numbers found back then, and the challenges of doing birdwatching then and now.  The panel of K. S. Nataraj, Dr. S. Subramanya, Dr. M. B. Krishna, Karthikeyan S., and Usha Ramaiah have been part of group birdwatching in Bangalore for decades and this session will be moderated by Dr. K. S. Seshadri.
