Come join us for our Saturday bird walk at 10:00 am, followed this time by an introduction to how to use the real-time online birding platform, eBird. Learn how you can become a citizen scientist by not only sharing your bird data with family and friends but also to the larger bird community. Following a bird hike around the Scioto Audubon Metro Park, Angelika Nelson of Columbus Audubon will demonstrate how to use eBird, including:         

*  Keeping track of the birds you see

*  Using eBird to find specific species in your area

*  Determining when birds are migrating through your area

*  Sharing bird checklists with friends

*  Planning trips using eBird data
