Welcome to eBird Hotspots

eBird is a real-time, online checklist program which has revolutionized the way that the birding community reports and accesses information about birds. Managed by the Laboratory of Ornithology at Cornell University and jointly sponsored by the National Audubon Society, eBird provides rich data sources for basic information on bird abundance and distribution.
This website provides descriptions and maps of eBird hotspots in several states
