eBird passes 500 million records

in March, a Barn Swallow submitted from Shan, Myanmar by Wich’yanan (Jay) Limparungpatthanakij was the 500-millionth record entered in eBird. 15 years ago, in eBird’s first year, we averaged 15,000 sightings per month. Today, during peak birding season that many sightings are eBirded every hour. Thank you. Read more.
