Audubon's new Hummingbirds at Home app makes it easy and fun to keep track of the hummingbirds you see while collecting data that helps Audubon scientists understand how to protect them.
Hummingbirds must sync their migration and nesting times with the flowering of nectar-bearing plants to survive. Climate change threatens to throw off this delicate balance, with unknown repercussions for hummingbirds. We know that scientific research will be essential for helping us understand how climate change is affecting hummingbirds and for learning what we can do about it. But it’s not that simple. Collecting the necessary scientific data across large areas is difficult and costly.
This is where you come in. By joining the Hummingbirds at Home team you become part of the movement to crowdsource hummingbird science, spending a few minutes each week to collect important data in your community.
While other birding apps help you identify birds, Hummingbirds at Home lets you contribute to their well-being. Join us! Visit hummingbirdsathome.org to find out more.
