210 in 2010: eBird Idaho - Week 27

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!  That goal has already been reached!  Now we are focusing on the second part of the competition which 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!

Here is the current leader board...

Hyperlinked names are those that have been featured in my weekly blog segment called Idaho Birder Profiles where we spotlight one of Idaho's enthusiastic birders!

  1. Robert, I see that you are closing in on me with the most checklist submitted to eBird in the USA. Yesterday when I checked eBirds' Top 100 you had 538 lists and I had 564. Good for you! I had no idea we were so close in number for this year. Keep up the good work as I intend to.

    I am anxiously awaiting the final results for this contest. I am so glad that the species in Idaho are being documented! Idaho is such an awesome place!
