Sept 2016 eBirders of the month


ebirding-challenge-logo-800px-281x300Our apologies for being a day late with announcing the September eBirders of the month — we’ve been caught up in the excitement of launching the Patch Birding Challenge and the eBird-India Data Challenge — do take a look if you haven’t already! While you are clicking about, do also check out What’s on in October in terms of birding and eBirding.

But for now, let’s look at the break-up of eBirding in India in September (with previous month in brackets).

Number of birders: 779 (709)
Number of lists (all types): 8,303 (9,562)
Number of lists (complete, 15min or longer): 7,187 (8,525)
Number of observations: 1.33 lakh (1.48 lakh)

The challenge for September was to upload at least 6 eligible lists per week to eBird, with eligible lists being defined as no-X, complete birdlists of 15-minute duration or longer. Of the 779 eBirders in September, 19 met or exceeded the target for the month. They are (as always, excluding group accounts):

Ajay Gadikar
Ajinkya Supekar
Ashwin Viswanathan
Avishkar Munje
Govind Girija
Hari Kumar
Jayadev Menon
Lakshmikant Neve
Lekshmi M K
Manju Sinha
Namassivayan Lakshmanan
Panchapakesan Jeganathan
Prashanth N S
Ramit Singal
Sasidharan Manekkara
Shanmugam Kalidass
Subbu Subramanya
Vidhya Sundar
Vinay Nadig

Many congratulations to all of them!

One person from these 19 was chosen using a computer-generated random number to receive a small gift. That person is

Avishkar Munje

who receives a copy of Bird Sense: What it’s Like to be a Bird by Tim Birkhead. (You can read a review here, and there is a website devoted to the book too.)
