December is peak birding season in much of India. Here is the break-up of eBirding in India in Dec 2017 (with previous month in brackets).
Number of birders: 1,476 (1,288)
Number of lists (all types): 16,500 (12,800)
Number of observations: 3.37 lakh (2.42 lakh)
The challenge for December was to upload at least 30 eligible birdlists (see the link above for details). Of the 1,476 eBirders in this month, 92 met or exceeded this target! They are (as always, excluding group accounts):
