Birds on Your Land

A critical first step in strategic conservation is knowing where, when, and what species of wildlife occur on your land. eBird, a Citizen Science project operated by the Cornell Lab, is an important tool available to land trusts for determining the presence/absence of bird species, monitoring populations, storing and visualizing data, and engaging the bird watching community. Below we describe the many facets of eBird and provide instructions for getting the most out of this easy to use, yet powerful resource.
