eBird October Big Day
Global Big Day has become a May tradition for tens of thousands of eBirders: 24 hours to put your favorite park/county/state/province country/continent on the global birding stage. Last year the folks at Cornell Lab of Ornithology couldn’t wait a full year between Global Big Days, and October Big Day was born. On 17 October, October Big Day is back! Can we beat last year’s total of 6,331 species on a single October day?
Mark your calendars for the fall Big Day event! All you have to do is go out and bird on October 17th – from wherever you are- and record it on your free eBird account! That’s it! Last October, Indiana ranked #22 in the nation, with 290 checklists and 156 species observed. For Big Day in May 2020, we pulled off an impressive 1745 checklists and 236 species, putting Indiana at #18.
To be entered to win prizes, all you have to do is log an eBird checklist and/or share with us on social media using #BIGIN20! Prizes include a brand new Saw-whet Owl shirt! For questions regarding October Big Day, please email Sam (firstname.lastname@example.org).
