Gulf Coast Oil Spill Bird Tracker
eBirders can make a difference by surveying local beaches and marshes for birds. By getting out now and reporting the birds you find to eBird, your observations will provide a real-time snapshot of the region’s birdlife, helping conservationists and researchers understand where, when, and how many of each species are currently occurring on local beaches and wetlands. Team eBird has produced the eBird Gulf Coast Oil Spill Bird Tracker gadget that can be embedded in your iGoogle page for quick access to the eBird database. This gadget is driven by the eBird point maps. The data displayed is for the five Gulf Coast states since April 2010.
