June is normally another month where birding activity is relatively low. Still, several hundred people birded (and eBirded) through the month.
Here is a break-up of eBirding in India in June (with previous month in brackets).
Number of birders: 621 (678)
Number of lists (all types): 5,200 (6,100)
Number of lists (complete, 15min or longer): 4,300 (5,100)
Number of observations: 0.95 lakh (1.11 lakh)
The challenge for June was to upload 20 no-X, complete checklists of at least 15-minute duration of which at least three lists must document a brood-parasitic cuckoo (seen or heard). Of the 621 eBirders in June, 39 met or exceeded the target for the month. They are (as always, excluding group accounts):
Ganeshwar S V
Maxim Rodrigues K
Prashanth N S
Many congratulations to all of them!
One person from these 39 was chosen using a computer-generated random number to receive a small gift. That person is
Maxim Rodrigues K
who receives a copy of How to be a (bad) birdwatcher by Simon Barnes. (You can read reviews here and here.)
