Thu 29th NZ bird Atlas update
New Zealand bird Atlas update Presented by Kirsten Olsen, (Atlas coordinator for Birds NZ Manawatu) and Stephen Legg Birds NZ launched New Zealand’s largest ever citizen science project in June 2019: The New Zealand Bird Atlas. The aim of the project is to record the birds in every corner of New Zealand (mountains to sea) in each season over five years. Anyone anywhere in New Zealand can help with this scheme by recording and entering the birds they see and hear on the eBird phone app. The eBird app is linked to the Merlin phone app to help with identification of birds if you are uncertain or do not know the bird. This talk will describe Atlas progress after the first two years - how many people have contributed - which areas and seasons are well covered and which are not. You can help. As a keen tramper you visit areas that most other citizens do not, so you could record birds that nobody else will hear or see. After the talk we can help you install the eBird and Merlin apps. If you would like to practice using eBird and contributing to the Bird Atlas join us in Ashhurst Domain for a couple of hours on Saturday 1st or Sunday 2nd May 9am (contact Stephen on 027 647 0095 or Kirsten on 027 354 6010).
