Featured birding site
Grand Teton National Park is one of the crown jewels of the US National Park System located in northwestern Wyoming. Encompassing over 300,000 acres (1,300 square kilometers), the area centers around the magnificent Teton Range and Jackson Hole. Here you will find a high sagebrush desert below towering alpine and mixed-conifer forest communities abounding with riparian areas in between. This diversity in habitat makes it ideal for different Intermountain West specialties from greater-sage grouse in the plains to black rosy-finch in the high peaks.
Taxonomic update 2021 complete
We are happy to announce that the eBird/Clements taxonomic update 2021 is now fully implemented on Orniverse. This means that in all reports and site descriptions (list of top species), recent splits and lumps have been executed and name changes have been implemented on the entire platform. Nevertheless, Orniverse knows most older names and synonyms, so if you are searching for a species in one of the search boxes you will almost certainly find the one you are looking for. The upload of eBird checklists to create your reports should now work flawlessly again. Let us know if you experience any problems. We have also updated the list of endemic species for each country (search for a country on Orniverse to see full list of endemics). Indonesia has gained 12 endemics, followed by Peru with +8 endemics.
