Powered By eBird - the world's largest database of bird observations.

All over the globe, tens of thousands of birders acting as citizen scientists submit millions of bird observations every month to Cornell University’s eBird database. These observations are then reviewed by local birding experts for accuracy to ensure the validity of each sighting. RareBirder is powered by this database to give you an accurate and comprehensive listing of recent rare or unusual bird sightings for anywhere in the world where eBirders have submitted observations.

You don't have to join or use eBird to use RareBirder, but consider joining - it's free!
