D-Bird: NYC Bird Mortality Database by NYC Audubon
If you find a dead or injured bird, you can make an important contribution to Project Safe Flight (http://www.nycaudubon.org/project-safe-flight) by reporting the bird into NYC Audubon's new database from your computer or mobile device at D-Bird: NYC Bird Mortality Database (http://d-bird.org/) data collection tool. Also see Lights out NY (http://www.nycaudubon.org/lights-out-new-york).
The Kingbird journal archive by The New York State Ornithological Association (NYSOA)
This unique research and educational resource, incorporating 57 years (229 issues) of the journal, demonstrates NYSOA’s commitment to its mission to “further the study of bird life and to disseminate knowledge thereof.” According to NYSOA president Carena Pooth, the Association expects that the data base will not only serve as a rich source of information for studies already underway but also stimulate new work on the birds of New York State. Being able to find specific information quickly with a computer will save researchers the countless hours of work that were previously necessary when sifting through hundreds of paper issues of The Kingbird.
The archive, online at www.nybirds.org/KBsearch.htmrepresents a $15,000 investment by NYSOA in the future of New York State’s birds. NYSOA volunteers spent well over 100 hours working on the project. The searchable data base currently contains about 8 million words on nearly 16,000 pages comprising more than 5,200 files. In addition, there is an online library of 229 full issues and 4 ten-year indices available for download or online browsing. Four issues of The Kingbird will be added to the archive each year.
