Haikubox Global Big Day 2024

Haikubox Global Big Day 2024

Did you celebrate World Migratory Bird Day on May 11, 2024 by participating in a Global Big Day event or submitting an eBird checklist? Haikuboxes also participated in their own friendly birding competition.

Haikuboxes captured the diversity and abundance of birds by collecting data from over 1,700 locations across the globe. Collectively, they identified over 400 bird species and recorded over 4.4 million bird vocalizations. This included 40+ warbler species, nine hummingbird species, and six hawk species.

There were no surprises in the most abundant bird species: House Sparrow (almost 500,000 identifications), House Finch (almost 400,000 identifications), American Robin (over 300,000), Northern Cardinal (almost 250,000), and Carolina Wren (over 225,000). Collectively they made up 39% of all birds identified by Haikuboxes on Global Big Day.

Haikuboxes also identified less common species and regional favorites, including over 6,100 Evening Grosbeak identifications (180 sites), 17 Pinyon Jay identifications (5), 850 Black-chinned Hummingbird identifications (54), over 3,600 Blackburnian Warbler identifications (283), 28,000 Red-winged Blackbirds (532), and 3,800 Western Tanager identifications (223).

Haikubox owners are able to download and analyze their own data, turning the Haikubox network into a powerful tool for community science.
