web-button-large.gif eBird is a real-time, online checklist program which has revolutionized the way that the birding community reports and accesses information about birds. Jointly sponsored by the Laboratory of Ornithology at Cornell University and the National Audubon Society, eBird provides rich data sources for basic information on bird abundance and distribution.

The website provides descriptions and maps of birding locations in New Mexico.
In eBird, hotspots are shared locations where birders may report their bird sightings to eBird. Hotspots provide birders with information about birding locations where birds are being seen.

This website is under development. Eventually, there will be a description for each eBird hotspot with maps, bar chart table, and links. If you get a message that a page does not exist, it is scheduled for development soon. Please check back later.
