Mike Prince's analysis of the BirdRace Log Books show that an impressive 238 species were recorded in total, from all teams combined. This was 88 more than the winning team themselves recorded. In other words, the winning team recorded about 63% of the overall total. Compared to bird races elsewhere, I think this is quite a low proportion, which tends to imply either that it should be possible for one team to get many more species than the winning total of 150, or may be that owing to Bangalore traffic and other logistics, it is not possible to visit all the best sites and habitats in the time available!
