More than 18,000 eBirders from 164 countries and territories joined together on 19 October to go birding on the second October Big Day. The global count of 6,497 species broke last year’s total of 6,360 species, setting a new October Big Day record!
This month’s eBirder of the Month challenge, sponsored by Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, will get you out in the field snapping photos and making audio recordings. The eBirder of the Month will be drawn from eBirders who submit 50 media on eligible checklists during August. Winners will be notified by the 10th of the following month.
