July 2015 eBirders of the Month


challenge-logo-2015

The challenge for July was pretty tough — document at least 20 hours of birding through the month with complete, effort-based lists of any duration. Many of us tried our best but didn’t manage to clock up the targetted 20 hrs. So we thought that barely a handful of birders would be able to meet the challenge.

Overall, during July, the number of complete, effort-based lists  was 3,530. In all, 377 birders uploaded 3,900 lists of all types from July, together accounting for nearly 65,000 observations from India.

Of the 377 July eBirders, an amazing 42 people racked up 20 or more hours of birding through the month! They are (as always, excluding group accounts):
