2017 eBird Challenges

I’m going to try to keep up with the 2017 eBird Challenges each month. I’ll keep track on this page. Read all the latest from eBird here: eBird Latest News.

2017 | JAN | FEB | MAR | APR | MAY

The May eBirder of the Month Challenge will be drawn from eBirders who submit 3 or more eligible checklists on 13 May, which is the Global Big Day.

The April eBirder of the Month Challenge winner will be drawn from members that submit at least 15 eligible checklists entered using eBird Mobile. I managed 24 checklists that fit the criteria for this one.

The March eBirder of the Month Challenge winner will be drawn from submitted eligible checklists that include one photo or audio file. Each eligible checklist is one entry into the challenge. I managed 9 checklists with photos (species photos indicated in list below).

The February eBirder of the Month Challenge winner will be drawn from submitted eligible shared checklists. I almost always go birding alone and it was the case for every outing in February so I didn’t make this one. 🙁

2017 Checklist-a-Day Challenge
eBird has year-long 2017 Checklist-a-Day Challenge, a competition sponsored by Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. In truth in order to be eligible for entry you need to submit 365 complete checklists for the year; technically you do not have to submit a checklist for each day during 2017.

JANUARY 33 (+2 for year)

MARCH 22 (-9; -4 for year)
APRIL 24 (-6; -10 for year)
