Win a pair of Zeiss Binoculars from eBird!

Do you have a smartphone?  Do you like birds?  If so, you could have a chance to win a free pair of Zeiss binoculars from eBird!

Just download the FREE eBird Mobile app onto your IOS or Android device and start recording the birds you see!  The eBirder of the month will be drawn from eBirders who submit at least 15 complete (must have estimated number of each bird species with no “X”) checklists using eBird Mobile in February.  Winners will be notified by the 10th of the following month.  Read more about the contest here.

We (Flo & Nancy) can personally say this is a fabulous app!  It provides improved accuracy in counting, precise location selection, and overall birding information.  And no more paper tracking when we get home, sometimes days later.  Never used eBird?  Learn all about it on the eBird help site.

Not quite sure the name of the birds you see?  Another great and FREE app we recommend you load on your device is Merlin ID, found here.

Just in time for the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) next weekend, load both apps on your device and start identifying and counting birds today!
