A number of B-Aussers are involved in atlassing and many like to report their first cuckoo observations. There is a Phenology Network in the USA - is there an equivalent in Aus?

Citizen scientists monitor plants, animals and crops
The USA National Phenology Network opened in 2007. The aim is to monitor biology across the US. Plants and animals are indicators of changing climate. 5,000 citizen scientists track migrating animals or flowering times of plants. The information is entered on a website and analysed by ecologists. It is hoped the data will allow mapping of ecological change as climate changes.
