Help us celebrate The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Global Big Day and World Migratory Bird Day on May 13, 2023! How? Go out and count birds and add your observations to eBird. Take 10 minutes creating an eBird checklist from birds you observe in your garden or head out with friends and family to walk your favorite trails or routes and count all the birds you see or hear. Add your observations to an eBird checklist and voila, you’re done! You have a full 24 hours from 12:00 midnight to 11:59 pm on May 13th to count your birds.

Last year more than 51,000 people from 201 countries submitted 132,000 checklist, the Osa Peninsula included, surpassing the previous year’s record! Help us make this year even better!! Help scientists understand bird populations to help protect them!

Join our Trip Report “Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica” to have your checklist included in our Trip for Global Big Day! Just send us your eBird username.
