As citizen scientists who promote avian conservation, we are happy to report that we have submitted over 500 checklists to eBird for Montgomery County, Georgia!
Since February 2012, we have documented and assisted with the preservation of rural Georgia's avian population. We have utilized various means of support such as photographing, identification, feeding and providing water resources for local birds and for migrants who arrive during migration season. During nesting season, we install nest boxes for the Eastern Bluebird species.
In addition, as we photograph and identify each species, we submit reports during the week to eBird. These reports help with the research for The Cornell Lab of Ornithology. We also document our findings and research, accompanied by photographs, to this blog and our photography website.
Our hope is that we will encourage everyone to actively support the preservation of Georgia's beautiful avian population so that future generations may enjoy the wonders of nature.
