BirdCast World Edition: United Kingdom

Team BirdCast plans to include a more diverse array of forecasts and analyses for this season. You may have already seen some of the new graphics that we started to employ earlier in March. Now, we present another new feature: BirdCast World Edition.

Thanks to¬†eBird’s global scope, we can also have a look at what is going with species on the move in other parts of the world outside of the United States. For example, we can look “across the pond” to see that in the last week the United Kingdom has seen arrivals of two species, Common Chiffchaff and Eurasian Blackcap. The percent of eBird checklists reporting blackcaps¬†has increased by 423% in the last week alone (63% for chiffchaffs).
