Musings and trip reports about birding from the region 

Mugla eBird

Mugla is the province that Dalyan is within. 

eBird is run by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society and between 2014-2017 was used to support the mapping of the 'Bird atlas of Turkey'. Current bird sightings for the region are constantly being updated by the site and visitors to the reigion can contribut to that information.  eBird is described below.


Global tools for birders, critical data for science

  • Record the birds you see

A real-time, online checklist program, eBird has revolutionized the way that the birding community reports and accesses information about birds. Launched in 2002 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, eBird provides rich data sources for basic information on bird abundance and distribution at a variety of spatial and temporal scales.

eBird’s goal is to maximize the utility and accessibility of the vast numbers of bird observations made each year by recreational and professional bird watchers. It is amassing one of the largest and fastest growing biodiversity data resources in existence. For example, in May 2015, participants reported more than 9.5 million bird observations across the world!

The observations of each participant join those of others in an international network of eBird users. eBird then shares these observations with a global community of educators, land managers, ornithologists, and conservation biologists. In time these data will become the foundation for a better understanding of bird distribution across the western hemisphere and beyond.
