Like Birds? Help Scientists with eBird

Do you like birds? Do you ever go for a walk and notice lots of different species of birds and feel the need to record the sightings in some way? Want to help scientists understand how climate affects wildlife? If you answer yes to any or all of these questions you should definitely be using eBird.

eBird is an on-line database of bird observations providing scientists, researchers and amateur naturalists with real-time data about bird distribution and abundance. Launched in 2002 by Cornell University and the National Audubon Society, it has grown leaps and bounds since it began. It has become the model for many other citizen science programs around the world.

Other citizen science programs you can participate in:

Mountain Watch

The Great Sunflower Project

Project BudBurst

Project RoadKill
