eBird Tuesday

Go on a bird walk every Tuesday at the Ward Museum starting at 9am in the lobby with Ward education staff. Join local birders, Ward Museum staff, and SU students and faculty as they collect data on local migrating bird populations and submit that data into the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s eBird citizen science program. eBird provides the opportunity to collect real data for real scientific purposes. The need for this data is particularly great on the lower Eastern Shore of Maryland, where numerous birds live, yet limited eBird data is collected. Visit the eBird website to find out more.
