    New eBird Maps!

    I hope Brian Sullivan will elaborate on this sometime soon, but eBird has recently rolled out a beta version of their new & improved global range & point maps.  I have been playing around with them some and think it is an amazing resource for birders- I hope it will steer even more people into using eBird.  The feature "…allows you to view global maps for any species or subspecies, refine the data to a specific season or date range, and then drill down to the individual sightings that make up the map."

His photography has appeared in international nature publications, books, newspapers, interpretive signs, web pages, advertisements, corporate logos, and as references for art works. Also a published writer, Bill wrote a chapter for Good Birders Don't Wear White, is a past Colorado/Wyoming regional editor for North American Birds and is proud to be on the Leica Birding Team. Bill is a Colorado eBird reviewer and is especially fond of his involvement with the ABA's Institute for Field Ornithology and Young Birder Programs.

      eBird rocks! I’ve really been enjoying this new map feature.

    Birders know well that the healthiest, most dynamic choruses contain many different voices. The birding community encompasses a wide variety of interests, talents, and convictions. All are welcome.
    If you like birding, we want to hear from you.
