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.
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).
