Birding Resources & Tools

Below is a collection of awesome Bird resources and tools that I rely on to learn, locate and identify Birds. They also provide collaboration and social opportunities with fellow bird watchers! 

Beach, Murphy Island

LIST of Bird Watching and Education Resources & Tools


Our goal is to gather this information in the form of checklists of birds, archive it, and freely share it to power new data-driven approaches to science, conservation and education. At the same time, we develop tools that make birding more rewarding. From being able to manage lists, photos and audio recordings, to seeing real-time maps of species distribution, to alerts that let you know when species have been seen, we strive to provide the most current and useful information to the birding community.


Showcasing the spectacle of bird migration. When, where, and how far will birds migrate? How many birds passed last night? Our tools help you explore the answers to these and many other questions about bird migration.
