Happy World Shorebirds Day!

6 September marks the celebration of shorebirds and those who cares about them all around the world. Since Friday (2 September) the Global Shorebird Counting Program has been running with full swing. Birdwatchers are in the field counting shorebirds and sharing their records with World Shorebirds Day. If you have been in the field anytime since Friday, consider joining the celebrating crowd and share your records with us through eBird.

By the way, have you seen our fantastic set of prizes? One of them you can win if you decide to be a returning supporter and counter of the Global Shorebird Counting Program from this year. Read more here:

You can follow the progress of the counts here:
