RareBirder is powered By eBird - the world's largest database of bird observations.
All over the globe, tens of thousands of bird watchers acting as citizen scientists submit millions of bird observations every month to Cornell University’s eBird database. These observations are then reviewed by local birding experts for accuracy to ensure the validity of each sighting (verified sightings are marked with an *).
RareBirder is powered by this database to give you an accurate and comprehensive listing of recent rare or unusual bird sightings for anywhere in the world where eBirders have submitted observations.
