Each year people from around the world come together to watch, learn about, count, and celebrate birds: the Great Backyard Bird Count. Help this citizen science project while you do what you enjoy doing, observing the birds in your environment. One of the highlights of this project is to watch your fellow participants as they add content to eBird. You can watch online as bird counts are added. Each submitted checklist becomes a glowing light on the eBird bird sightings map.
Feb 12-15, participate in this global event: GBBC.
The April-November, participate in Project Feederwatch.
These projects are coordinated by National Audubon, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Birds Canada.
We encourage you to record your observations year round using eBird. It takes lists, which in the past remained with the observer, and shares them in a database with professionals for science and conservation. More than 100,000,000 bird sightings are recorded in the eBird database annually.
