Download eBird Trip Data

Trip data is available to download for exploring any number of questions one might have. Clicking the download button will generate a csv file for manipulation in Excel or any spreadsheet progam. A few basic skills such as sorting and filtering in a spreadsheet will provide one with some interesting information.

Hints for Using the Data

  1. When possible, the duration of the trip has been calculated. Some earlier trips may show as 0 because of no times recorded.
  2. Because the data is collated by DFO trip definitions which frequently include multiple locations and hotspots, more discrete lists may require a bit of searching in eBird to match particular checklists with discrete locales. Go to and replace the identifier (S number) with the checklist ID in your spreadsheet to see the actual eBird location.
