When and Where Bird Checklist 2023

We share our census observations of every Wednesday of migration monitoring to eBird, which has greatly improved the reliability of the eBird dataset for our site, but only during the periods we are actively monitoring. To share your checklist with others and to help us expand our hotspot data beyond the migratory seasons, you can go to the eBird website and input your observations. Scientists, land managers, ornithologists, and conservation biologists can then use your data from eBird for a multitude of large scale studies.
