Crow’s Nest & eBird data

January 7, 2012

Data collected at Crow’s Nest is part of the species database found on eBird. Natural Lands Trust volunteer and birding consultant Scott Stollery collected bird species presence data on a recent walk here and submitted it to the website, a partnership of Audubon and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

The website collects and makes available bird species presence and absence data, displaying graphs of what birds are seen during each month of the year, and in what locations. The data is submitted by volunteers and reviewed by their scientists.

The data is aggregated so don’t expect necessarily to see Crow’s Nest as a hotspot. But we’re glad that Scott collected the data and submitted it!
