This month’s eBirder of the Month challenge, sponsored by ZEISS, is all about capturing birding memories through photos and audio recordings. Each photo or audio recording you upload is an incredibly powerful piece of data.
eBird Status and Trends products are updated annually with millions of new observations submitted by eBirders to provide the most up-to-date information on the status and trends of bird populations. This year, the team released new tools, added regional trends summaries, and made Trends data available for download.
If you had the opportunity to name the species on the left what would you call it? The American Ornithological Society (AOS) is embarking on a long-term process to revise English common names of birds in the Americas named after people, starting with a pilot program focused on the US and Canada.
This fall season, learn how to document your birding experiences with a nature journal in addition to your eBird checklists. We’ve partnered with the Cornell Lab’s Bird Academy to offer a field sketching instructional that will transform your time outdoors.
Birding is centered on connections: connecting to one’s self, connecting to nature, and connecting to others. This month’s eBirder of the Month challenge, sponsored by ZEISS, is all about birding together.
On 14 October, people in 191 countries around the world joined together to celebrate birds for October Big Day. More than 36,000 people contributed 83,735 checklists, setting three new records for the single biggest day in October birding history!
Please join us in congratulating Tamara Catalán Bermudez of Chaitén, Chile—winner of the September 2023 eBird Challenge, sponsored by ZEISS. Tamara’s name was drawn randomly from the 310 eBirders who submitted at least 20 checklists in September each containing one or more rated sound recordings.
