Do I need to submit a checklist each day, or do I just need to submit 31 by the end of the month?
I was reading January's eBird challenge to submit a checklist for every day, and some of the wording confused me a little bit (I found the same wording for the challenge to submit a checklist for everyday of the year). Do I need to submit at least one checklist each day? Or do I need to submit 31 by the end of the month (meaning, I could submit 2 one day, and 0 the next, as long as I came out with 31 at the end)? Same thing for the year challenge, do I need to submit one a day, or 351 checklists by the end of the year?

I just re-read the text and it is ok to just enter 31 checklists from the same day if you can make it :)

the true intention is the equivalent of one entry per day no matter when the actual observation is submitted to eBird. Yes, you can wait 'til end of month and make many entries then. Some argue that as long as you have 365 entries by year's end that is all you need. Others suggest that you must have at least one entry for each individual day of the year. Make your own challenge??
