I am teaching a class on eBird this Thursday 7pm at the Phinney Neighborhood Center for Seattle Audubon. There are spaces available in the class, so if you have ever had an interest in learning more about eBird, now's your chance!
Beginner’s Guide to eBird
with Andrea Wuenschel, assisted by D. Eric Harlow
Have you heard of eBird but don’t know where to start?
Already have an eBird account, but would like to get more out of it?
Created in 2002 by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon
Society, this free, real-time, online checklist program has
revolutionized the way the birding community records and accesses bird
data. eBird is a great way to record all your bird sightings online.
Your bird lists become shared data used by conservationists,
researchers, students, and the birding community to explore, protect and
enjoy birds all over the world!
In this class we’ll go over the most important features in
an eBird account, different methods to record sightings, how to use the
program to find recently sighted birds, explore dynamic graphs and maps,
and touch on the ethics of real-time reporting of sensitive species.
We’ll also briefly cover eBird apps for iPhone and Android systems, so
you can enter your lists in the field!
Lecture: Thursday March 28th, 7-9pm
Location: Phinney Neighborhood Center, Blue Building, Room 6
Cost: $30 members; $45 non-members
