Mark the 8th May in your birding calendar for Cornell’s Global Big Day! This is an annual celebration of the birds around us, and no matter where you are, you can be part of a global birding effort and share the birds you find with eBird.

The eBird team recently updated their ‘Science’ tab with new models depicting movements, distribution, and abundance patterns for 179 new species, including 10 New Zealand species. These models offer a bird’s-eye view of avian movements and are all produced using eBirders observations.

Easy data entry from the field, even when offline. All your lists and stats in your pocket. Wherever you go, eBird is there. Available in 27 languages on iOS and Android, all for free.
