ebirding-challenge-logo-800px-281x300

June is an odd month when parts of India are still reeling in the heat and other parts see heavy rain — neither very conducive to birding. Still, you can’t keep birders away from birding! Here is the breakup of eBirding in the country in June 2019 (with previous month in brackets):

Number of birders: 1,430 (1,600)
Number of lists (all types): 11,400 (14,600)
Number of observations: 1.90 lakh (2.40 lakh)

June challenge

The challenge for June was to upload at least 30 lists, 3 of which report a brood-parasitic cuckoo (details at the link above). Of the 1,430 eBirders in this month, 98 met the target. These are (excluding group accounts):
