We often record bird sightings at the Museum.
Some records are informal, like our notes at the Viewing Window (see below for recent birding entries from our blog).
Some records are for monitoring purposes and we record those in eBird, one of many citizen science projects. That’s where records from our monthly bird monitoring walks, the Early Birder walks, Nestwatch and Great Backyard Bird Count, or when something particularly unusual gets reported.
We also participate additional not-just-birds citizen science projects.
Below you will find recent blog posts categorized “birding”. The full blog is here, and of course we invite you to attend a walk or several.
