We use Trail Tracker software to track the different species of birds spotted by visitors. Our Trail Tracker kiosk at Mission Wild Bird also allows us to log the exact location of bird sightings within our Wild Bird Sanctuary. All of the birds listed on the right have been observed at our sanctuary in the last fourteen days. For a more in-depth look at our eBird data, click here.
eBird is citizen science program that allows users to submit birding logs to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Data from these logs are then used by the Cornell Lab to track bird populations, migration patterns, and so much more! eBird also makes it much easier to keep track of the bird species that you’ve logged.
