Please join us for Alvan Buckley‘s presentation on “Birding with eBird” on Thursday April 21, 2016, at 7:30 p.m. in the Science Building, Room SN2067, on the MUN campus.

 

As a keen bird-watcher and “eBirder”, Alvan is excited to share his passion about eBird with others. He has been an avid birder for 6 years, and has traveled across the country volunteering with the Canadian Wildlife Service and the Long Point Bird Observatory; he has also worked as a birding guide at the renowned Point Pelee National Park. If not studying medical books, or roaming hospital floors, he can be found biking around town eagerly checking the local hotspots for migrating birds and learning about our flora and fauna. For the past 3 years, Alvan has volunteered as one of the Newfoundland reviewers for eBird and helped promote the program with the local community.

 

eBird is an online checklist program where anyone is free to join and submit their observations. Everything that is submitted is added to a permanent database and archived for use now and in the future. eBird provides a great tool for individuals, organizations, researchers, conservation groups, and land managers to access a huge amount of information about the distribution and abundance of the world’s birds. Over 1000 people have already contributed sightings to Newfoundland’s database, totaling close to 50,000 lists. Come learn how you can explore all this data to learn about our birds, and see how easy it is to record your sightings.
