Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas eBird portal
Have you observed a Great Horned Owl on a nest already this year? How about an incubating Bald Eagle? Prairie-chickens dancing? Ravens nest building? With the Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas eBird portal now live ( this is your chance to contribute the project's first field data by entering these sightings and other early-season breeding behaviors.

To assist you we've developed the following step-by-step tutorial for entering Incidental observations such as those often made early in the year before prime atlasing season begins.

Look for additional tutorials on Traveling counts, complete checklists, and other atlas topics in the weeks and months ahead!
