October Big Day 2019

Global Big Day has become a May tradition for tens of thousands of eBirders: 24 hours to put your favorite park/county/state/province country/continent on the global birding stage. Last year we couldn’t wait a full year between Global Big Days, and October Big Day was born. On 19 October, October Big Day is back!

Can we beat last year’s total of 6,331 species on a single October day?
