Do you have a trip planned to escape the cold grip? Perhaps you are traveling to a place where Vermont birds spend the winter? Help us track migrant birds wherever they go with eBird.
To help learn about Vermont's summer songsters during the winter, we'd like to announce the launch of Hispaniola eBird , an initiative of the Hispaniola Ornithological Society, the Audubon Society of Haiti, the Vermont Institute of Natural Science and the National Aviary, in conjunction with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Audubon. This is the regional eBird project for the Dominican Republic and Haiti, the birthplace of John James Audubon. The island of Hispaniola has a rich and amazing avifauna with 31 endemic bird species, and we welcome the chance to help learn more about these birds through the inclusion of this island in the eBird database.
At Hispaniola eBird you'll find information specific to birding on the island, and you'll be able to learn more about the birds of this amazing place! Visit Hispaniola eBird and record your past and present observations today.
Wherever your travels take you, there is an eBird portal for you. Here are some that have recently become available for your southern adventures:
Or, you can enter and explore data anywhere outside of Vermont on the main eBird site. Happy trails!
