Part of what makes Habitat Network great is its behind-the-scenes connections to other citizen-science projects. Submit your bird sightings to eBird, and they will show up in your site info-window and the Site Explorer automatically. Just 1) click on “Set Up Bird Sightings” in the Site Explorer at left, then 2) click the Birds tab to start. First, you’ll need to associate your YardMap site with a location in eBird. For your convenience, your Habitat Network username and password also get you access to eBird.

You can also view checklists submitted by other people by opening their site in the Site Explorer. See which birds have been spotted in your neighborhood, and compare notes with other habitat stewards. Or, if there aren’t any maps nearby, just use our ZIP code tool to have eBird show you what birds have been seen within 20 miles of your location. It’s a great way to learn about new birds that you haven’t yet, but perhaps could, see on your property!
