May 9th is the most important birding day of the year! The Global Big Day 2020.
Even though we do not all have the same possibilities to go birding, we will adapt to any situation. Watching from the balcony of our house, on a little walk in the park or on our favourite country plot, there is no excuse!
From Followers we ask you to join forces next May 9th in favour of citizen science.
The instructions are very simple: wherever you are, record all your observations through the eBird application. If it can be in several lists, throughout the day, perfect. The longer you can continue to observe and the more species you detect, the better! At the end of the day, you can share your observations through eBird with our Followers user: LIFEFollowers.
For those of you who don’t know how this platform works, we encourage you to watch our colleague Pablo de la Nava’s talk at YouTube.
The observations of the thousands of people we will be watching will help us to better understand the status of bird populations and distribution worldwide.
Last year, more than 35,000 eBirders from 174 different countries registered more than 92,000 bird lists, in just one DAY.
Would you like to be part of a new birdwatching world record in 2020?
