The eBird API allows developers to programmatically retrieve data from the eBird website. Developers can retrieve birding observation information such as recent or notable observations within a region, observations of a given species within a region, recent nearby observations, and historic observations on a given date. Developers can also get information on regions, hotspots, bird taxonomy, and more.
Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Travel, Referrals, Lyrics, and Books. Highlights include a geofencing API from TomTom, an API for blockchain news aggregation, and an API for bird data. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
