eBird Pacific Northwest – Discover a new world of birding...

Partners and collaborators

eBird Northwest is a collaborative citizen science project managed by Avian Knowledge Northwest.


Explore birds and hotspots near you and wherever you go, all based on the latest sightings from around the world.

Join the world's largest birding community. Every sighting matters. Contribute yours.

What's your latest life bird? What bird lists do you care about? eBird tallies them for you and archives your photos and sounds—all for free.

Advancing science and conservation

Your sightings contribute to hundreds of conservation decisions and peer-reviewed papers, thousands of student projects, and help inform bird research worldwide.

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.

At eBird Northwest, we encourage everyone to watch birds and share what they see. Thanks to Birdability founder Virginia Rose and National Audubon's Birdability Map, eBirders can take direct action to help people find accessible spaces to watch birds.

Bushtit (Pacific) ML36243231

The Pacific Bushtit and Interior Bushtit populations differ visually and apparently have relatively little contact, as they are largely separated by major ecological barriers to bushtit dispersal, such as the Sierra and the Cascades. Even though Bushtits are considered relatively sedentary, both populations are expanding their range, creating the possibility of increased contact, particularly in areas where the barriers to dispersal are not as significant, such as the Klamath Basin, the lower passes in the Cascades and the Columbia Gorge.

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.
