Following the tradition, this year’s Lynx ID Challenge will try to find out who is the birder in the Delta Birding Festival who can identify most birds of the Western Palearctic. The race will show a continuous video with 30 pictures and play 20 sounds of birds from this biogeograhical region. Contestants will have 30 seconds to identify the picture while the song is being played at the same time. Needless to say that the picture and the sound don’t match the same species. It would then be too an easy lead, taking into account the standards of difficulty of this contest!
Lynx Eds. sponsors this contest with three prizes consisting of a set of books each. The first prize is the HBW and BirdLife International Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World. Vol. 1 + Vol.2, valued in 350€.
Winners of past editions were
2014 Killian Mullarney / 2015 Marc Illa / 2016 Marcel Gil / 2017 Stephen Menzie
But these big names shouldn’t deter you from participating. You aren’t gonna find more fun in any other contest!
