Recent Press, 2011-2019, for BirdCast and its team

Andrew Farnsworth The Cornell Lab Apr 11, 2019

Since its beginnings, BirdCast has been fortunate to receive media attention from a diverse array of outlets. We’ve assembled some of these below in this post to keep you all updated on the outreach and education. Some of the links are more directly related to our work with radar and aeroecology, others more closely to eBird, and some others still to ornithology in the broadest sense.
