The challenge for October was straightforward — to upload lists for at least 25 days of the month. The last time we did this was in March 2015, when 19 birders met the target for the month. How many managed it this time?
Overall, during October, the number of complete, effort-based lists of at least 15 min was 5,100. In all, 560 birders uploaded 6,000 lists of all types from the month, together accounting for just over 1 lakh observations from India, around the same as last month.
Of the 560 August eBirders, 43 met or exceeded the target of 25 days of birding! They are (as always, excluding group accounts):
Abdul Raheem Munderi
Dr George P J
Phani Krishna Ravi
Prashanth N S
Raja Simma Pandiyan
T R Shankar Raman
Many congratulations to all of them!
One of these 43 was chosen using a computer-generated random number to receive a small gift, and that person is
Raja Simma Pandiyan
