Last week I was very surprised and pleased to receive a 'certificate of appreciation' from The State of India's Birds survey.
This annual survey is to assess the distribution, range and abundance of 942 species of bird that occur in India. It is a important survey that helps in setting the conservation status of the birds of the country.
My certificate was in recognition of the 134 checklists I uploaded onto eBird while in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh back in March.
