Dear <<Citizen Scientist Login_Name>>,

Today’s Activity: Monitor Birds (or other wildlife)

After a few weeks spent thinking about flora you might be ready to explore some fauna. One of the most powerful aspects of Habitat Network is our connection to the Cornell Lab citizen-science data system, meaning you can participate in multiple Cornell projects and have your data linked together behind the scenes. This sets us up for some powerful science--where we can look at the specifics of your landscape alongside bird monitoring data to understand more about how habitat conditions impact bird populations. In order to make this work, though, you have to start monitoring the birds at your site. 

Over time we plan to extend our data linking capabilities to include other monitoring protocols hosted by other wonderful citizen-science organizations (pollinators? frogs? mammals?); but, if you want to dive in right now, linking your site our pre-existing, integrated bird-monitoring option, eBird, is the way to go. And, if you already use eBird, then fantastic--you are already one step ahead.
