Researchers use eBird to study impacts of cities, pollution on birds
Your eBird observations are an important scientific resource. Two recently published studies of eBird data show how reducing pollution can benefit birds. In one, authors suggest measures that cities can take to help migrating birds. In the other, authors conclude that ozone reductions may have saved over a billion birds so far.
New species are being discovered with help from the Macaulay Library
Join us for an adventure in sound sleuthing as researchers scale mountains and listen in on sound recordings in the Macaulay Library to discover new species. Your recordings help power their discoveries. What new species will be uncovered next?
