July 2016 eBirders of the Month


ebirding challenge logo 800pxAlthough we are still in the ‘off season’ (measured by birding activity), July usually has a little more eBirding than June, and this year was no different.

Here is a break-up of eBirding in India in July (with previous month in brackets).

Number of birders: 717 (621)
Number of lists (all types): 6,934 (5,200)
Number of lists (complete, 15min or longer): 6,082 (4,300)
Number of observations: 1.11 lakh (0.95 lakh)

The challenge for July was to upload complete birdlists of at least 15-minute duration on each of at least 5 separate days, with each list shared among at least three birders. Of the 717 eBirders in July, 30 met or exceeded the target for the month. They are (as always, excluding group accounts):
