At the start of 2021, we challenged the eBird community to elevate their eBirding to the next level: submit an average of one complete checklist a day, all year. To our delight, 6,745 eBirders submitted at least 365 eligible checklists during 2021—nearly a thousand more qualifying eBirders than the previous year!

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.
