When you submit a checklist to eBird, you make your observations available to the global community of researchers, educators, conservationists, birders, and anyone else with an interest in birds. These data are freely available for download here. This list of publications highlights ways in which eBird data are being put to use. We would like this list of publications to be as inclusive as possible, so if you know of other publications that have made use of eBird please let us know.
