Send Real-Time Bird-Watching Data To Scientists Directly From The Field

Send Real-Time Bird-Watching Data To Scientists Directly From The Field

Smartphone app, Birdlog, lets you easily collate and send your field notes to ornithologists and biologists.

Notes and data from hobby bird watchers can now be quickly and easily added to one of the world’s largest online bird observation databases. Created by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, BirdLog allows users to contribute their field notes in real-time to help biologists and scientists understand and track avian population trends. The app utilizes the smartphone’s GPS to provide precise locations and includes a set of input fields to help the user gather quality and standardized data.

BirdLog is a mobile-extension of eBird, which is a website containing extensive data on avian species, migration and trends through crowd-sourced data from bird-watching enthusiasts. BirdLog is available for $9.99 on iOS and Android devices.
