Winter Mountain Bird Race 2018 (L'Oiseau-Course d'Hiver d'Altitude = OCHA)

This very special Bird Race was invented by our younger birder colleagues from the French-speaking part of Switzerland (Groupe des jeunes de Nos Oiseaux). This event is THE ornithological and social event you shouldn’t miss this winter!

The main idea is to record a maximum of bird species in the middle of the winter during a 24 hours period but … only above 1000 m above sea level!

Here the rules:

  • The 2018 "race" will take place on one of the following weekends: 27th-28th January, 3rd-4th February or 10th-11th February 2018.
  • Each group is composed of at least two persons who will remain together during the whole race. Each and every bird species must be observed by at least two members of the group.
  • Only the bird species observed above 1000 m above sea level are eligible. (It’s a Swiss Race but highly motivated birders are allowed to take part everywhere else in the world!).
  • As soon as the 24 hours period starts, only displacement with muscle power is allowed (on foot, by bicycle, skis, snowshoes, skateboard, row-boat ...). No car, no public transportation.
  • A cheese fondue meal has to be organized among the participants in the evening before the race starts (Saturday evening).
  • At the end of the "race", the organizer (henridescombes@hotmail.com) will receive from each group a short report with a commented list of species.
  • Participate at your own risk!
