Community Science Projects

eBird Northwest promotes Community science opportunities for birders in the Pacific Northwest. Here, you’ll find opportunities to participate in data collection that helps biologists understand and conserve birds and their habitats. These projects are designed to request and provide information on focal native bird species: distribution, related habitats, migration and seasonal patterns, and responses to conservation, restoration, and/or management actions.

Ideally, projects posted here use eBird Northwest as the data collection tool and contribute to the ever-growing eBird and Avian Knowledge Northwest databases used by local, regional, national, and international biologists. This is a great way for your observations to inform conservation solutions!

CDLT Conservation Fellow, Susan, is joined by a citizen science volunteer, conducting the May, 2016 eBird protocol survey at Horse Lake Reserve. The ten-minute stationary count included western bluebird, American robin, yellow-rumped warbler, chipping sparrow, and spotted towhee.
