You don’t need to be a birding expert to provide valuable observations to the Maine Bird Atlas project!
Every bird sighting helps, even the birds in your backyard or at your feeder. You likely know more birds than you realize, and the great thing about this project is it doesn’t matter what you don’t know, just report what you do.
Sharing your sightings is easy!
Step 1: Go outside OR watch for birds in your yard from the comfort of your home.
Step 2: Take note of: What species you see. When (day and estimate of time). Where you see it. And ... How many individuals of a species you see at any one time
Step 3: Create an account at ebird.org/me.
Step 4: Log into your account at ebird.org/me and click “Submit.” Follow the prompts to enter your observations.
It’s that easy! Thank you for sharing your sighting and participating in this project to help guide Maine's future bird conservation efforts.
