The Power of Citizen Science

I just found this really cool article on eBird’s website about how citizen science has contributed to our understanding of birds. Scientists were able to use data collected through eBird’s website to track the migratory routes of 118 bird species between North and South America over a whole year! I was so glad to read this article and know that the reports being submitted every day are going to a great cause. You can follow this link to the article to read more and watch an animation that tracks the movement of 118 species over the year: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/news/lasortemap/.
