More than the final handful of several years I have turn into much more and additional fascinated with birds. I imagine which is owing in portion to my daughters’ enjoyment of observing the numerous appealing birds that appear to the feeders about our dwelling. We have even taken to naming some of the birds that pay a visit to the feeders. For instance, Hans is the identify my oldest daughter gave to just one of the rose-breasted grosbeaks that visits our kitchen window each night. 

It is really our fascination with birds that induced me to investigate the eBird Status and Trends map earlier this week. eBird’s Status and Traits map allows you select a bird then see exactly where in the environment it is uncovered at different instances of the 12 months. That’s particularly what I did with our mate Hans the rose-breasted grosbeak. Using eBird’s Position and Trends map I was ready to speedily see the place Hans and his friends would be before and soon after shelling out the summer season with us here in Maine. Check out my quick video clip to see how to use eBird’s Status and Tendencies map to see the place various birds are at various periods of the calendar year.
