Participate In The Global Big Day 2017

N MockingbirdPARTICIPATE IN THE GLOBAL BIG DAY sponsored by The Cornell Lab

Global Big Day is a single day, uniting birdwatchers worldwide across political boundaries and language barriers, all brought together by a shared passion for birds. In 2016, 17,000 people from 153 countries took part. We encourage Birders in The Bahamas to join this effort!

It’s simple to contribute: go birding and then submit your data to eBird—how easy and fun is that? You don’t need to do a full day of birding; even an hour or 10 minutes makes a difference!

Global Big Day is May 13th, 2017.

How to make your sightings count?

To have your sightings be included in the Global Big Day, they have to be entered in eBird as one or more checklists. Go to to learn more. Don’t forget, every bird counts for the Global Big Day. Whether it is a Northern Mockingbird in your neighborhood (pictured here) or a critically endangered species on some remote island, eBird and the world want to know about it.
