ebirding-challenge-logo-800px-281x300The challenge for November was to upload 1 checklist every day in November and 2 lists a day during the Sálim Ali Bird Count. December marks the peak winter migrant activity for most of the country and as the birding increases so does the number of lists being uploaded.

To celebrate the winter months, the India eBirding challenge for December is to upload at least 1 list every weekday (Mon to Fri) and at least 3 lists in total every weekend (Sat and Sun). Each list you submit should be of at least 15 minutes duration complete lists and with no ‘X’
