Bird Count India | Supporting listing and monitoring of birds across India Bird Count India Skip to content Home About Partners Contact Us ← Older posts by Bird Count India | 1 August 2016 · 10:30 August 2016 eBirding Challenge July’s monthly challenge was all about sharing the joy of birding with fellow birders and friends. But now, resident birds should be about to finish nesting, the so-called ‘lean’ birding period is slowly coming to an end, and signs of returning migrants are already evident from all across the country. August marks the beginning of the passage migration (in variable amounts) across the country and birding regularly would help in noticing changes in birdlife in your region. The challenge for August is to upload no-X, complete birdlists of at least 15 minutes duration, from at least 25 different days of the month. This kind of challenge is to not only encourage us to bird more regularly but also to look for birds just about anywhere – from a balcony at home, during a break from work, at a bus stop, etc – and at all times! Such birding is also more fun! It ensures that we keep our eyes and ears always on alert for the sights and sounds of birds. It also challenges and enhances our skills as birders – can we tell apart our resident bulbuls, doves or mynas just by sound? Or do we know what birds are found in the urban areas we frequent? Please upload all your lists by 5 September so that we can announce the results the next day. Here are the general rules of our monthly challenges. Do check out the yearlong challenges as well! You can keep track of fresh lists coming in from India at this page. You can also take part in the global eBirder of the Month challenge! Important. if you are new to eBird, please read this description first, and do take a look at the Beginner’s Guide. Cattle Egret in breeding plumage. From this birdlist by Akhil Gupta in Delhi. Leave a Comment Filed under eBirding Challenge by Bird Count India | 18 July 2016 · 13:07 For the love of birds: A pilot birding workshop in the Andaman Islands Krishna Anujan, Zoya Tyabji, Sowjanya Chandrasekhar, Vardhan Patankar and Chetana B Purushotham conducted a very successful birding workshop in the Andaman Islands with the aim to train and help local bird enthusiasts develop as birding tour guides in the islands. Here is their description of what they did, with some advice at the end for others who wish to conduct such workshops. It was a typical June day in Port Blair – cloudy, unpredictable, and beautiful. Somewhere in town, 25-odd people were intently watching a couple of glossy swiftlets soaring, unperturbed by the bad weather. These people were a collection of bird photographers, zoology students, doctors, tour operators, trekking guides and even a few forest guards, who had all come together to be students again, for five days. The Forest and Tourism Departments, Andaman and Nicobar Islands had organised a birding workshop to train and certify local islanders as birding tour guides. To conduct this workshop, five of us researchers, loosely associated with the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Environmental Team (ANET) put our heads together to come up with a plan. The team at Mount Harriet National Park, South Andaman ? Basheer Over the five days of the workshop (31 May to 4 June 2016), we held sessions that covered bird diversity, endemic species, natural history and behaviour. Throughout the workshop, we practised techniques (and tricks) to identify birds by looking at their shapes and patterns, habits and habitats and by listening to their sounds. We emphasised the need to record observations by making notes, sketches and lists. Entire sessions were dedicated to learning how to count birds, use field guides and share lists on eBird. We had a lot of fun during bird quick-draw quizzes, a parliamentary-style debate around birdwatching ethics and finally birding-guide trial runs where roles were reversed! It turned out to be a good balance of classroom and field time when we birded in different ecosystems: forest edge and fields, evergreen forests, littoral forests, mangroves and beaches. At the end of five days, everyone had caught up to the same level; what had started out with a photo quiz where few answered, ended with a bird pictionary where everyone was drawing and shouting answers! Learning about mangroves and birds at high tide ? Arun Singh The entire group has now organised into a birding society that takes a trip every other weekend and shares birding updates through social media. Many have been actively contributing to eBird since, and their reach across these islands, where birding is still a new hobby, can be phenomenal. What we learnt about conducting a workshop For the five of us, who have never done a workshop of this scale previously, this was a huge learning experience that was highly satisfying as well. Here are a few things that we learned along the way: Starting the workshop with a lesson plan and schedule, but being open to constant modifications as you get to know your participants, helps to accommodate their strengths and weaknesses. The biological and technical aspects of bird watching can be taught in local languages. Our methods of teaching (inspired by the SCUBA diving way of learning!) ensured that sessions began with a clear briefing and ended with a critical debriefing session with the students. While planning the workshop, ‘instructor’ notes helped us immensely to keep track of the main messages needed to be conveyed in each session. Adults enjoy interactive games too! Post-session evaluations help students recap their learnings especially when done using interactive (and often impromptu) games. Constantly mix the students (using birding-based games again) for the different sessions (even if you sense reluctance at first) and you might find that you’ve helped create a mixed group, flocking together even months after the workshop. The team observed a red-tailed trinket snake feeding on an Andaman wood pigeon at Mount Harriet National Park ? Ankita Chowdary Here are the checklists from our birding sessions: Shoalbay: Checklist 1, Checklist 2, Checklist 3 Mt Harriet NP: Checklist 1, Checklist 2, Checklist 3 1 Comment Filed under Happenings by Bird Count India | 6 July 2016 · 18:05 June 2016 eBirders of the Month June is normally another month where birding activity is relatively low. Still, several hundred people birded (and eBirded) through the month. Here is a break-up of eBirding in India in June (with previous month in brackets). Number of birders: 621 (678) Number of lists (all types): 5,200 (6,100) Number of lists (complete, 15min or longer): 4,300 (5,100) Number of observations: 0.95 lakh (1.11 lakh) The challenge for June was to upload 20 no-X, complete checklists of at least 15-minute duration of which at least three lists must document a brood-parasitic cuckoo (seen or heard). Of the 621 eBirders in June, 39 met or exceeded the target for the month. They are (as always, excluding group accounts): Abhishek Gulshan Abinand Reddy Ajay Gadikar Akash Gulalia Albin Jacob AM Amsa Ankit Vikrant Ashwin Viswanathan Avinash Bhagat Ganeshwar S V Indira Srinivasan Jayadev Menon Jaydev Mandal Komal Agrawal Lakshmikant Neve Manju Sinha Maxim Rodrigues K Panchapakesan Jeganathan Prashanth N S Premchand Reghuvaran Rajendra Gadgil Rajesh Prasad Ramit Singal Raphy Kallettumkara Renju TR Sahana M Sanjiv Khanna Sasidharan Manekkara Selvaganesh K Shanmugam Kalidass Shivaprakash Adavanne Shruti Patil Shwetha Bharathi Steffin Babu Suhel Quader Trilok Rana Vaidehi Gunjal Vidhya Sundar Vinay Nadig Many congratulations to all of them!

And there is also a set of yearlong challenges for 2016 to bird towards! Leave a Comment Filed under eBirders of the Month, eBirding Challenge by Bird Count India | 30 June 2016 · 15:50 Is that a Pipit or a Lark? Few birds are as confusing to the beginning birder as Pipits and Larks. The first step towards identifying the species within the two families is to be able to tell between a pipit and a lark. Here is a short guide to telling apart these confusing ground-dwelling birds. Morphology Pipits and larks are generally confused with each other because they can look very similar in plumage. Both are usually brown, variably streaked both above and on the breast and generally have some pattern on the face. Paddyfield Pipit – note the streaking on the back and on the breast, a clean facial pattern ? Ramit Singal Indian Bushlark – plumage wise, similar to above Pipit with streaking on upperparts and on the breast, relatively well defined facial pattern ? Albin Jacob (See in checklist) However, some pipits may also be relatively plain brown – and correspondingly, some larks may appear quite unlike their congeners and look quite plain as well! Tawny Pipit – pale, clean breast and upperparts, overall relatively non-descript with not many markings ? Pronoy Baidya (see in checklist) Rufous-tailed Lark – a very different lark from the rest, relatively much plainer and appears quite rufous ? Noah Strycker (see in checklist) Structure The best way to visually differentiate larks from pipits is to note the structure of the bird. The key differences are highlighted in the following table: Pipits Larks Build Slimmer, lighter Dumpier, heavy-looking Bill Slender Heavy, thicker (variable) Wings Narrower Rounder/broader Tail Longer Shorter Nostrils Fully exposed Partially exposed (variable) Crest None Some show a crest Note: All features may not be true for all species, but all pipit or lark species will show at least 3-4 features respectively. Blyth’s Pipit. Note the overall lighter build, slender beak, exposed nostrils, medium-length tail ? Ramit Singal Sykes’s (Tawny) Lark. Note the heavy bill, dumpier looking structure, presence of crest, partially exposed nostril ? Vaidehi Gunjal (see in checklist) Tree Pipit. Note the lean build, slender bill, exposed nostrils ? Syed Muzamil (See in checklist) Ashy-crowned Sparrow-lark. Note the bulky structure, heavy bill, short tail, unexposed nostrils, crouched stance ? Prashant Kumar (see in checklist) Rosy Pipit. Note the longer tail, slim beak, slender structure, upright looking stance, exposed nostrils ? Pranjal J Saikia Jerdon’s Bushlark. Note the bulky structure, thick bill, short tail ? Vinoba Anand (see in checklist) Behaviour Pipits are active feeders, seen moving around and standing upright often. Larks, on the other hand, are relatively slower and usually appear to have a crouching stance. (Note: This is indicative of the pipit’s more insectivorous diet, and the lark’s dietary preference for plant material) Here are a few videos to illustrate these differences in behaviour: Paddyfield Pipit – note its active behaviour and movements on the ground Greater Short-toed Lark – winter migrants to India, seen here scouring the ground for seeds/bulbs/other plant material. Malabar Lark – filmed while it was searching for plant material to feed upon Vocalization Calls of pipits and larks can be very similar. However most lark songs are more complex, longer than those of the pipits and may even include mimicry! To illustrate these differences: Across most parts of the country, this Paddyfield Pipit song is often heard in spring and summer. The Oriental Skylark song is a remarkable mix of various complex notes and mimicry. Summary These guidelines should help you with the first step in tackling larks and pipits. The next step is to distinguish between the different species of larks and pipits. That is a more difficult topic and will be covered in future articles! 18 Comments Filed under Species Information Tagged as Identification, Larks, Pipits by Bird Count India | · 12:01 July 2016 eBirding Challenge The challenge in June was to upload 20 no-X, complete checklists of at least 15-minute duration of which at least three lists must document a brood-parasitic cuckoo (seen or heard). July may not be the most exciting month of the year for many birders – but birding in the summer/early monsoon can be made more fun with other birders for company! The challenge this month is to upload at least 5 complete checklists of at least 15 minutes duration, from at least five different days. Crucially, each of these lists must be ‘shared’ between three or more birders. Check out this page to learn more about sharing lists. When you go birding with your friends, and then upload the lists of species seen, you can ‘share’ the list with those who were on the trip, and then the list of species gets copied into each person’s account (so there is no need for each person to upload their list separately). Once shared, each person can tailor the lists specifically to what s/he saw – deleting missed species, and adding species that the others may not have recorded. In this way, everyone on the trip can keep a faithful record of what they saw. This list is an excellent example of a shared checklist. Note how you can click on the ‘List’ button to see each individual person’s list. Note also that if you just want to show others your list, you shouldn’t ‘share’ with them; rather, you can simply send them the URL to your list (eg: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S30191358). In a nutshell: Go birding with at least 2 other people for at least 15 minutes and make a list of all birds that you saw or heard. Have one person in the group upload the list of birds seen to eBird Ask that person to ‘share’ the list with all others who were in the group (each person will get an email; if they don’t already have an eBird account, they will be invited to create one) All others must accept the shared list into their account Repeat steps 1-4 on at least 5 different days in July Birders at Hoskote Lake, Karnataka ? Ravi Viswanathan Finally, do consider inviting your family and friends for a few birding parties: anyone is welcome to set up an eBird account. Such a social event is also good way to get children interested in birds. Please upload all your lists by 5 August so that we can announce the results the next day. 5 Comments Filed under eBirding Challenge ← Older posts Our partnership supports listing and monitoring of birds in India: from birders maintaining their lists, to groups monitoring local birds.
