October is when many ducks look their best! A fresh set of feathers can bring all sorts of fun ID challenges—from teal to scaup and beyond. We’re excited to partner with the Cornell Lab’s Bird Academy to offer a suite of exciting educational resources in thanks for your eBirding. Every eligible checklist you submit in October gives you a chance to win free access to Be a Better Birder: Duck and Waterfowl Identification. If you enjoy watching ducks and geese you’ll love the quick ID techniques in this course. Ten lucky eBirders will win!
If you like taking part in the eBirder of the Month Challenges, here are even more excuses to motivate yourself to get out birding. Each month will feature a different Bird Academy course offering—tune in at the start of November to see what’s on tap for next month.
