210 in 2010: eBird Idaho - Week 17

For those of you checking into the Idaho Birding Blog for the first time, I am hosting a little competition to see who can be the first eBirder in Idaho to see "two-ten in twenty-ten", that is 210 species of birds this year!  A second part of the competition is to see who can submit the most checklists to eBird by the 210th day of the year (July 29th).  Here are the rules of the game.

The eBird team and KAYTEE have been very supportive of this effort to encourage birders to be eBirders and are donating $210 worth of cash or prizes to the winners!  So far, we have quadrupled the number of Idaho checklists submitted to eBird.

Here is the current leader board...

Species Leaders:
1.  J Harry Krueger 184
2.  Steve Butterworth 171
3.  Jay Carlisle 169
4.  Heidi Ware 168
5.  Darren Clark 167
6.  Cheryl Huizinga 163
7.  Lynn Davenport 157
8.  Terry Gray 152
9.  Zeke Watkins 148
10.  Robert Mortensen 143

Checklist Leaders:
1.  Robert Mortensen 413 (not eligible to win)
2.  Jackson Whitman 319
3.  Cheryl Huizinga 180
4.  Lew Ulrey 177
5.  Charles Swift 175
6.  Lynn Davenport 125
7.  J Harry Krueger 109
8.  Steve Butterworth 104
9.  Rohn McKee 103

  1. Robert, awesome work! Well done everyone! Keep up the good work. I KNOW there are so many good birds in Idaho. This data will prove it to the world. You don't know how I wish I had kept better records when i lived there!
