Birding AboardPlease contribute to the Birding Aboard Project! Birding Aboard was created to raise awareness among long-distance boaters from around the world to record their seabird observations. All data goes to eBird, a worldwide resource for scientists and conservation groups.

More information is available at or on Facebook at, where you can share your questions, photographs, and experiences with other birders aboard. 

You don't need to be an expert to participate. We're encouraging mariners to simply take digital photos of birds seen en route, then note the latitude-longitude or photograph your chartplotter display. We'll help you identify and report your sightings.

Please join the count and contribute much-needed information about pelagic birds. You are the "eyes on the water" for seabird conservation!
