eBird, the Macaulay Library, and other Cornell Lab projects have been restored. A huge thanks to the Cornell Lab technical team for their hard work migrating the entire eBird database to its new home.

An additional thanks to YOU, the global eBird community, for your patience and support. Your messages during the database update warmed our hearts and made us laugh. We often say eBirders are united by a shared love of birds. This week, we also saw birders united by a shared love of eBird. We are truly touched—and glad to be back!

If you missed any of our fun programming during the maintenance period, check out the archived content below: 

  • Birding Live on Location – Join birders in NY, Texas, Minnesota, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, England, Spain and Israel for an hour of great birds and fascinating tales.
