The Spring Alive project is a simple birdwatching survey organized by BirdLife International. Thanks to European and African citizens, children and adults, we are able to track the arrival of common spring migrants across continents each year. These "Spring Alive bird species", which migrate between Africa and Europe crossing many borders, are the Barn Swallow, Common Swift, Cuckoo, White Stork, Sand Martin and Eurasian Bee-eater. We are interested in your personal first observation of these birds.?xml:namespace>
Participation is very simple and can be a great fun. All you need to do is register your first birds sightings on-line every year.
We analyze the results to follow how spring is coming together with birds every year and to find the week when the most of people have seen their first birds.
Take a look at the results pages to see what we discovered.
