I’ve created a user name for eBird for the bird club. If anyone is interested in posting their sightings on this wonderful service, email me - birdfreak@birdfreak.com - for the user name and password.

eBird is a wonderful service that allows you to submit bird sightings via checklist format based on location (you set the location). What this does is it generates graphs that you can review, etc. I thought it would be cool if club members but sightings they had so we could have records of them for years to come. Here is an example graph (cropped to fit)

The data only began in March so it is a bit limited but you can see a bit how it works.
