The service from Cornell University's Lab of Ornithology provides descriptive information about bird species to support bird watchers and biological researchers. Along with related services Avian Knowledge Network and Neotropical Birds Online, it gives free access to authoritative information about individual species. Also available is information about bird populations for specific locations, including a mapping interface.
API methods support information retrieval by species or location. Applications can also log sightings of particular species and tracking of individual contributors' sightings. The provider invites birders to share their sightings across the eBird community for use by hobbyists, science research, and conservation efforts.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
