Have you heard of geocaching? The folks at eBird have taken this fun idea and made it better—by including birds! Stay tuned for the January/February 2018 issue of the SJV eBulletin for the official launch of our Avicaching game. Visit specific eBird hotspots, submit checklists, and help us fill in gaps in knowledge about birds and under birded spots in southern California’s desert. Every checklist you submit gives you the chance to win cool prizes. Can’t wait to learn more? Visit our Avicaching webpage for more details and watch for the official game launch in February 2018.
