There’s an App for That?? Computer and Smartphone Birding
Plus ECOC meeting, 7:30-7:45 pm
This ECOC meeting will be a “webinar” and is NOT being held at PEM.
Millions of applications (apps) are available for both Apple and Android smartphones, but which ones will really make a difference in your birding and naturalizing? And what about websites?
Mark Faherty, bird ecologist and Science Coordinator at Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, gives us the rundown on the latest and greatest apps for birding, ranging from digital field guides (iBird, Sibley, etc.) to eBird and Merlin and international apps.
After starting with an overview of eBird, Cornell’s bird sighting database, Faherty will then demonstrate apps you can use to find birds in your area, help you plan a trip to a foreign destination, and even a great one for expediting learning bird songs. He’ll also touch on the best traffic, weather, tide, and food-finding apps for getting yourself around and fed on your birding trips! Co-sponsored by PEM.
