2019 Checklist-a-day Challenge

In 2018, eBird received more than 6.5 million complete checklists from your birding efforts. Whether you’re seeing starlings or endangered species, eBird thrives on the enthusiasm and engagement of tens of thousands of dedicated participants worldwide who reliably enter their birding outings in eBird. Our most committed eBirders go a step beyond, putting in checklists from short yard counts, lunchtime walks, or a quick stop to scan their favorite local patch. Our challenge to you in 2019 is to see if you can submit an average of at least one checklist a day—for the entire year. At the end of the year three winners will be chosen from among those who submitted at least 365 eligible checklists in 2019, and will receive Zeiss binoculars for their efforts. Read more below.
