What is the INWR Bird Finder?
Our Bird Finder is a tool you can use to find out what birds have been sighted at Iroquois NWR within the last week. See our Birding Hotspots tool here.
The data here comes directly from eBird. eBird is a platform built to gather information from birders, archive it, and freely share it to power new data-driven approaches to science, conservation and education.
eBird is the world’s largest biodiversity-related citizen science project, with more than 100 million bird sightings contributed each year by eBirders around the world. A collaborative enterprise with hundreds of partner organizations, thousands of regional experts, and hundreds of thousands of users, eBird is managed by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.https://ebird.org/about
Our Bird Finder takes data from eBird, filters it specifically to INWR, and then then ranks all of the viewing areas by the bird you select to allow you to find the BEST place to visit to see that specific bird. The list of birds you select from contains ONLY birds that have actually been spotted at INWR in the last week – so if a bird is in the list, odds are you may get a chance to see it if you visit!
