  1. Just two days back I was suggesting to my 8-year old grandson to do a research on the birds in GB for his new blogpost. BRAVO you have fulfilled my desire.

  2. At the age of 68 I still do not know the names either in English or Urdu for a host of birds (about 49 in number) with BURUSHASKI names in our region. Do I leave this to my grandson or Imran is going to do it for the benefit of persons in my position?

  3. Imran Shah is doing a remarkable job by documenting the birds of GB. He should share his collection in here or at least run a blog related to birds of GB.
