Celebrate the Year of the Bird by joining the eBird community! eBird is a computer application developed by the Cornell Ornithological Laboratory in 2002 to record sightings of birds worldwide. It has established an enormous global database that is used by hundreds of thousands of birders and scientists. This workshop will show you how to set up a free account, record bird sightings for your outings, use features of the program to explore the complete data base to plan your own birding trips both locally and around the world, and access your personal bird species list.
