Description

BeakGeek allows citizen scientists to share information about birds and bird sightings using freely available and simple social networking tools such as Twitter. BeakGeek adds value to the data created with these tools by providing map based visualizations and monitoring for terms such as "Rare Bird Alert".

How to Join

Simply use Twitter to report your bird sightings and include a hashtag of #birds and or #bkgk. If you include the name of a city and state or similar place name we will attempt to place it on the map.

You may also share your bird photos by joining the BeakGeek Flickr Group.
