Fire is inherent to the American west and natural fires have played an important role in shaping our western forests. The benefits and impacts of fire are usually framed around risk to humans, but many wildlife populations depend on the resulting changes in the landscape.

If you are experienced identifying birds by sound as well as by sight, the North American Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) can really use your help! It involves one morning of your choosing between late May and early July and a willingness to spend the previous night, if necessary, at a location that may be a several-hour drive from your home.

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.
