Now that winter is gradually fading away, we enter a time of transition for the bird populations in most places in India. Winter migrants are beginning their long journeys northwards; and many resident species will be gearing up to breed.
The challenge for March marks this transitional period by asking us to track changes in the bird populations between winter and spring/summer. You can do this by re-visiting locations where you watched birds in the winter and examining the changes in the birdlife there.
So, the challenge for March is to re-visit at least four distinct locations where you eBirded during the previous three months (December to February), and upload an eligible list from each of these locations. Eligible lists are effort-based, complete lists, of at least 15 min duration. (By “where you eBirded” we mean where you had uploaded an eBird list of any type.)
The idea is that there is a lot to discover by visiting the same sites through the seasons, to look at the changing set of species and the changing behaviour of the species that remain. Please do add a note in the comments box if you see any interesting behaviour; and if you find any behaviour related to breeding, please add the appropriate breeding code, as shown in the screenshot below.
Please upload all your lists by 5 April so that we can announce the results the next day.
