July’s eBirding Challenge was straightfoward: accumulate at least ten hours worth of complete lists during the course of the month. In contrast to the previous month’s challenge, which only three people managed to meet, July’s target proved rather easy — with 36 birders meeting or exceeding it!
In all, 154 birders uploaded 1,313 lists of all types in July, together accounting for 20,977 records.
The 36 eBirders of the month for July are:
Dr George P J
Ganeshwar S V
Raja Simma Pandiyan
Many congratulations to all of them!
One of these 36 was chosen using a computer-generated random number to receive a small gift, and that person is
who receives a copy of Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures with Wolf-Birds by Bern Heinrich. (You can read a review here.)
We would like to make special mention of The Nature Trust, an organization based in Chennai. The monthly challenges are open to individuals who go out birding, and not to those whose eBird accounts aggregate lists from multiple people. For this reason, The Nature Trust has not been appearing on the list of eBirders of the Month, because its members put all their separate lists into this one account. But The Nature Trust is amazingly active, and in July its members contributed a total of 50.5 person-hours of birding to eBird. We salute their efforts!
