What is Birding Buddies

Birding Buddies is a free online resource for birders. It centralizes Wikipedia articles, simplifies eBird data, and gives users relevant information for their current location.

Birding Buddies is a great Birding reference. Every bird has its own page with classification information, an article, photos, and recent nearby sightings. Check out the Great Blue Heron as an example.

Location Aware

Birding Buddies uses the latest web technologies to give you results based on your current location. This includes nearby birding hotspots, nearby sightings, and notable bird sightings in your area.

eBird Simplified

eBird is a wonderful project. They collect and share a LOT of data, which we use gratefully. Our goal is to simplify that data and make it easier to search and navigate. We sort eBird data our way: by location (using Google Maps), conservation status, and taxonomy. These are all great ways to find the bird you're looking for.
