challenge-logoAs we announced earlier, MigrantWatch is working more and more closely with eBird to make the two databases compatible such that sightings reported to either website can easily be collated to understand patterns of bird migration in India.

We encourage you to submit you observations to eBird, especially if you are listing all species (resident and migrant) that you observe on a bird outing. Now, a new series of monthly birding challenges for India adds a bit of fun to our birding and listing activities. Bird Count India, a consortium of organizations and groups interested in bird listing and monitoring, is running these monthly challenges, which has a particular goal or target for participants each month.

Do take a look, and we encourage you to participate! The challenge for May is to upload at least four complete lists to eBird each week of the month. The details are here.
