Arrival Highlights – 24 April 2017

We’ve created a new tool to update us as species advance through their arrivals in each region, using data from eBird. We assign each species to four possible categories: Not Yet Arrived, Arrival Beginning, Approaching Peak, or Peaking. Then, we look for transitions between categories to tell us how each species is progressing through these stages. Below we show the transitions that have taken place in the last few days, and we highlight certain species with interactive maps.
