About eBird


When you submit a checklist to eBird, you make your observations available to the global community of researchers, educators, conservationists, birders and anyone else with an interest in birds. This list of publications highlights ways in which eBird data are being put to use. We would like this list of publications to be as inclusive as possible so if you know of other publications that have made use of eBird, please let us know at ebird@cornell.edu.
