Birding Together, While Apart
May 8 - May 16
Join the San Diego Audubon Society and go bird along the San Diego River! From the mudflats at the mouth of the river, to the tidal channels to the east, there are tons of birds to see here, and you will help us gather information about how shore and seabirds interact with dogs and people.
Bird Together, While Apart
Each month, the San Diego Audubon Society is highlighting a birding location in San Diego County, and asking our San Diegans to get out there (safely, while following social distancing protocols) and record as many species as they can using eBird. Many of these locations are in areas where the San Diego Audubon Society actively carries out restoration work or has other conservation concerns that they are tracking. By recording bird sightings in these areas, you are helping them gather more information about the species that frequent these areas. Students in the San Diego City College Audubon Campus Chapter will also use these data points in their research projects.
Getting Started with eBird
- You will need an active eBird account – sign up here.
- There are two ways to record birds in the field – eBird Mobile or via the website.
- Create a personal list in the hotspot location using the instructions above, and then share to “SDASBirdingHotspot.”
