Orniverse has released amazing new features

We are very excited to announce amazing new features on Orniverse! Users can now write detailed descriptions of their favourite birding sites, including info on timing and strategy, how to get there, top species, facilities, and much more. Everybody can contribute information and changes are tracked. All contributors are acknowledged at the bottom of each site description page. Also, each site description links to a chart on eBird which lists all the species that have been recorded at the site, their abundance and the best time to see them. Have a look at an example of such a site description.

In addition, we have added an awesome feature for all bird guides: You can now add yourself as a local guide to any site with just a single click. Your name will be listed under local guides and link directly to your profile and your contact info. It’s completely free! See here how to do it.

Let’s work together on building an online “Where to watch birds” guide that covers the entire world and is always up to date. It would be really great if you contribute your knowledge. It’s simple – here is how it works. Comprehensive site descriptions will be promoted through our social media channels and may be featured on our home page

Meanwhile, we are building tools that, in addition, will enable you to create digital, interactive maps of birding sites. We will inform you as soon as we are ready.
