The 2018 ebird World Big Day is on next Saturday, the 5th of May. I haven't done a gang-gang write up like the past 2 years, but get out there, see some birds, and ensure those records are submitted to ebird for eventual inclusion into the COG database.

One week from Saturday, Global Big Day is here! 

Your contributions to the past three Global Big Days have set back-to-back-to-back world records for the most bird species seen in a single day. Thank you. On 5 May, we're looking for another world record, and we need your help.  
Just like past years, you just have to go out and enjoy birds. Here's our two-step guide:
  • Watch birds on 5 May: You don’t need to be a bird expert, or go out all day long. Even 10 minutes in your backyard will help. Global Big Day runs from midnight to midnight in your local time zone. You can report birds from anywhere in the world.
  • Enter what you see and hear on eBird: You can enter your sightings via the website or—even easier—use the free eBird Mobile app. You can enter and submit lists while you’re still out birding, and the app will even keep track of how far you’ve walked, so you can just focus on watching birds. While you’re downloading free apps, try out the Cornell Lab’s Merlin Bird ID app for help with identification.
No matter what you do, have fun, enjoy the birds you find, and share your sightings on eBird. Because in our world, every bird counts.
