State of India's Birds - Report
The report contains a brief outline of the methods used to come up with the State of India’s Birds. For those who would like to dig deep, a detailed methodology is available.
The primary data used in this report is the 30+ million observations uploaded by Indian birdwatchers to eBird, an online birding notebook. Data on eBird is freely available for research, education and conservation. The data from birdwatchers observations was combined with supporting information for each species — including their taxonomic grouping, their habitat, migration, endemicity and diet — to create the summaries in the report.
Chirp! is proud to have contributed 29 checklists for this study.
