About eBird India

India-outline-vulture-280The eBird India portal is designed for the use of birders and eBirders from India. Keep visiting for news and events regarding birding in India and for tips and tricks to make your eBirding more useful and rewarding.

The eBird India portal is managed by Bird Count India, a partnership of a large number of organizations and groups working to increase our collective understanding of the distribution, abundance, and population trends of Indian birds. We do this by encouraging birders to maintain complete birdlists and uploading them to eBird; by conducting periodic bird events and projects; by offering support and resources to birding groups conducting their own projects; and by putting together useful information on bird monitoring.

Please visit the Bird Count India website to see a more detailed description of our objectives, a listing of all our partners, and updates on bird documentation and monitoring in India.

If you have any comments or questions, or need help with using eBird or with a documentation or monitoring project, please Contact Us.

In October 2017, eBird set up a system whereby species could be marked as sensitive either globally or at country level, which means that the location uploaded by the birder is masked from eBird public output. Seven Indian species were put on this list (More details here).
All of us get stuck at some point while using eBird, and have a question that needs answering. If you are new to eBird, we strongly recommend first reading through the Getting Started page and looking at the google spreadsheet linked from there.
