This month’s eBirder of the Month challenge, sponsored by Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, will explore what birds you can find from your yard!  The eBirder of the Month will be drawn from eBirders who submit 20 eligible checklists during April from an official eBird Yard. To track what you’ve seen in your yard or garden, log in to eBird and add your yard to eBird’s official ‘Yard’ tool.
