Doga, BirdLife Turkey and Karacabey Municipality teams discovered a major stopover area for Europe’s Great White Pelicans. The site is a so far unnoticed flood plain in Bursa, Karacabey, Marmara Region of Turkey, which hosts at least 50 percent of the European and five percent of the world population of the species during spring migration.

This month’s eBirder of the Month challenge, sponsored by Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, will keep get you snapping photos and recording bird sounds. Every time you take a photo or hold out a microphone, you're creating an incredibly powerful piece of data.
