If you want to find out about birds, and if you want to share your bird sightings for science and conservation, check out eBird. More than 100 million bird sightings are contributed to Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s eBird database each year by eBirders around the world. eBird helps birders learn where to see birds around the year while providing permanent storage for their bird sightings from anywhere in the world.
