Two big bits of online birding news!

1. The American Birding Association has announced the launch of Birding News, which will be their takeover of the functions that have long been provided by It is unclear if will be taken down or if it will redirect to Birding News but, either way, this is exciting news for the ABA!

2. eBird has reached 100,000,000 records in its amazing database of bird sightings. The 100,000,000th record was an American Robin and was reported by 12-year-old Liron Gertsman. Congratulations to both Liron and eBird!
