High-resolution data, visualizations, and tools describing where bird populations occur and how they change through time—powered by eBird data and updated annually, providing you with the best available science.
eBird plays an increasingly important role in science and conservation. Applications of eBird data range from research and monitoring to species management, habitat protection, and informing law and policy.
As spring arrives in the Northern Hemisphere, many birds make long-distance journeys, some traveling tens of thousands of miles between their wintering and breeding grounds. What’s more impressive—many of these journeys occur entirely at night.
