Use Online Tools to Find Birds Workshop: April 19, 2022

Long-eared Owl

The modern smartphone offers tremendous opportunities for the birder / photographer to research localities for migrating and resident birds. We will be exploring the following apps which are available to us:

  • iBird Pro (iPhone)
  • Merlin Bird ID
  • eBird
  • BirdsEye

(the later three are also available for android phones). Install the apps on your phone prior to the workshop so that you can better follow along with the presentation. I will be demonstrating their use on local birding hotspots as well as my past road trips.
