For kids, observing their own back-yard birds can be a spring-board toward a better understanding of the mechanisms of science and the importance of conservation.

The level of detail pEEp images provide allows individual birds to be identified.  It's a great joy to name your first unique pEEp visitor and see her return.

Did you know bird lovers make great citizen scientists? In fact, Hundreds of thousands of people around the world contribute bird observations each year, gathering data on a scale once unimaginable.  

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, along with other important conservation entities, administers many cutting edge, data driven initiatives that get people involved and excited about contributing to citizen-science.


BirdSleuth is one of those programs, designed specifically for kids.
