With winter coming in the northern reaches of the world, it’s duck season for many. This brings all sorts of fun ID challenges—from teal to scaup and beyond. We’re excited to partner with the Cornell Lab’s Bird Academy to offer a suite of exciting educational resources in thanks for your eBirding: in November, every eligible checklist that you submit gives you a chance to get free access to Be a Better Birder: Duck and Waterfowl Identification.
Ten lucky eBirders will get this course for free from their November eBirding—just in time to get your primer for the winter ahead. If you like taking part in the eBirder of the Month Challenges, here are even more excuses to motivate yourself to get out birding. Each month of 2017 will feature a different Bird Academy course offering—tune in at the start of December to see what’s on tap for next month.
