The Bird Migration Explorer serves as your guide through the perilous treks that more than 450 different bird species undertake each year and the obstacles they encounter along the route.
The arrival of autumn signals the beginning of the migratory season for millions of birds, which means they are on their way to the locations where they will spend the winter. Thanks to the National Audubon Society and its partners, bird watchers interested in following these birds’ migrations now have access to an incredible new tool that will allow them to do so.
The Bird Migration Explorer is a state-of-the-art, free interactive digital platform that combines the intersections of bird research and technology. It illustrates multiple types of migration data for bird species that breed in the United States and Canada and winter in Central and South America and the Caribbean. The platform combines the intersections of bird research and technology.
Using data collected from hundreds of different researchers and institutions around the Western Hemisphere, the application visualizes the connections formed when individual birds migrate across this region.
