Nelson Contardo, October eBirder of the Month

By Nancy Auerbach November 11, 2015

Please join us in congratulating Nelson Contardo of Santiago, Chile, winner of the October 2015 eBird Challenge, sponsored by Carl Zeiss Sports Optic. Our October winner was drawn from among those who submitted at least 31 complete checklists not containing an “X” in October. Nelson’s name was drawn randomly from the 1,541 eBirders who achieved the October challenge threshold. Nelson will receive new ZEISS Conquest HD 8×42 binoculars for his eBirding efforts. We asked Nelson to tell us a little more about himself, his use of eBird, and his love of birds – read on for more!
