★ ★ See more birds with BirdsEye ★ ★
You won't want to leave home without BirdsEye – it's like carrying thousands of local birding experts around in your pocket!
Binoculars and field guides have long been the birder's primary tools. Binoculars help you get a better look at the bird. A field guide helps you identify it. But how do you know *where* to see those birds? Are you at the right place to see the birds you want to see? Could you be missing something interesting nearby? BirdsEye is the indispensable new tool that gives you the inside scoop about which birds are being seen and where.
Experienced birders see more birds not just because they're good at identifying them. They see more birds because they get to the right place at the right time! They know where to go because they're experienced.
BirdsEye guides *you* to your best birding opportunities by unleashing the collective wisdom of the thousands of local birding experts that contribute to eBird - the massive, real-time bird observation system run by the bird experts at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
