The eBirding challenge for August 2014 was a repetition of that for April: upload at least 20 complete lists during the course of the month. In April, 17 birders met the target. In August, the number of birders meeting the same target was 23.
In all, 182 birders uploaded 1,819 lists of all types in August, together accounting for 28,131 records. These numbers are the highest since February! (In that month, the numbers were all very high because of the Great Backyard Bird Count, Kerala CBMP, Big Bird Day, and Bangalore Bird Count.)
The 23 eBirders of the month for August are:

Ganeshwar S V
