This month’s eBird challenge is designed to highlight these two events. The challenge is to submit 1 checklist every day in November. In addition to this, between 5- 12 November, submit at least 2 lists a day. Each list you submit should be of at least 15 minutes duration complete lists and with no ‘X’.
Below is a breakup of how 38 lists in November can be submitted:
At least 1 list a day for 1- 4 Nov
At least 2 lists a day for 5 – 12 Nov
At least 1 list a day for 13 – 30 Nov
Watch birds from anywhere in India: from parks, fields, campuses, backyards and rooftops, forests, and lakes. Any of the days between 5 – 12 Nov, you could also visit the nearest Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA) or any waterbody and undertake a careful count of birds for a long period of time (over an hour) to make it more meaningful.
Upload your observations to eBird.org/india.
The eBird mobile app is one of the easiest ways to upload your sightings. Here are a few video links that can guide you on how to use the App
Please submit all your lists before the 10th of December.
While birding, please ensure that you adhere to COVID-19 related instructions by central and local authorities
