e-Bird is the internet-based bird record system developed by the Lab of Ornithology and coordinated in Canada by Bird Studies Canada.  It is a method for maintaining one’s personal bird sighting records while also contributing your records to the largest international data base on bird observation.  The data is used by scientists around the world to gain a greater understanding of avian populations, dynamics and migration.  This is an indoor workshop led by Martin Parker and Matthew Tobey. They will give an introduction to e-bird, including how to enter data and how to review the data already submitted.  Jennifer Baici, a PhD student at Trent University, will give a short presentation on her use of e-Bird data to estimate the size of Peterborough County’s Wild Turkey population and how your individual observations can contribute.

This workshop will be at the Camp Kawartha Environment Centre off Pioneer Road, across from the Trent University Campus.   Bring your laptop or other mobile device to use during the workshop.
