Help Conserve Birds by Participating in Global Big Day!
May 13th is Global Big Day. Where will you be? The Cornell Lab of Ornithology through its eBird technology encourages the world to participate by recording every bird seen on the Big Day. Launched in 2002 by Cornell in collaboration with National Audubon Society, eBird provides data sources for basic information on bird abundance and distribution on many levels. This information is stored and archived daily and is available to all via the eBird website.
How does the Big Day work? A birder simply enters information as to where, when and what was seen and eBird does the rest. Join us in participating in the Global Big Day to support global conservation!
