Apologies for being a day late with the announcement, but the winners of the May eBirding challenge are now available! The challenge was to upload at least 20 complete lists from a single location through the month. The idea being that this encourages regular birding at a single spot to thoroughly document the birds of that location.
May, June and July usually see a dip in birding activity, and this year has been no different. Still, there has been a reasonable amount of birding in June, with the number of observations from the month being more than double that in June last year.
Overall, during June, the number of complete, effort-based lists of at least 15 min duration was 2,460. In all, 315 birders uploaded 3,100 lists of all types from June, together accounting for nearly 60,000 observations from India.
Of the 315 June eBirders, 25 people uploaded 20 or more eligible lists from a single location through the month! They are (as always, excluding group accounts):
Dr George P J
Ganeshwar S V
M D Madhusudan
T R Shankar Raman
Many congratulations to all of them!
One of these 25 was chosen using a computer-generated random number to receive a small gift, and that person is
who receives a copy of Collins Field Guide: Birds of India by Normal Arlott.
