Organiser is the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (New York, USA - provider of ebird). Everyone who wants to participate is welcome to count bird species and individuals - either alone or in group. Where and for how long, this can be decided individually. It is the 3rd time that this big event takes place. Last year 145 countries and more than 15.000 people participated. Peru already won twice that is there they counted the highest number of bird species. I counted today with a small group on our property and we came up to 90 species within 3 hours. Thereafter heavy rain started and we had to stop. I attach the list. Did you count, too???
