November eBirder of the Month Challenge

Trumpeter Swan Cygnus buccinator

The eBirder of the Month challenge, sponsored by Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, will help you find and share more birds by harnessing the power of your mobile device. The eBirder of the Month will be drawn from eBirders who submit 30 eligible checklists with eBird Mobile in November.

eBird Mobile is about more than just keeping bird lists. Use Explore to discover nearby hotspots and search recent species reports on the go. eBird Mobile’s Quick Entry shortcuts and checklists customized for your location and time of year make birding easier, faster, and more accurate than using pen and paper. eBird Mobile also helps with the details of your trip—such as how long and how far you’ve been birding—so you can just focus on the birds!

Get started with eBird Mobile here.

Checklists must be for observations made this month; not historical checklists entered during November. The winner will receive a new ZEISS Conquest HD 8×42 binocular and will be notified by the 10th of the following month. Each month we will feature a new eBird challenge and set of selection criteria. And don’t forget to submit lists for the 2022 Checklist-a-day Challenge!
