Get to know the birds of Barcelona

With the 'Breeding Birds in Barcelona Atlas ' project, anyone can become a volunteer scientist.

The Fàbrica del Sol, an environmental education facility, the Àrea d'Hàbitat Urbà of Barcelona City Council and the Catalan Institute of Ornithology, an organization dedicated to the scientific study of bird populations, will explain how by watching birds in Barcelona and enjoying the outdoors anyone can participate in a scientific project: the Breeding Birds in Barcelona Atlas.

These other neighbors that share the city with us are a good indicator of the environmental quality of our home. The knowledge of birds is a large territory management tool that can help us to build a city closer to its natural heritage. The Breeding Birds in Barcelona Atlas aims to reach a level of  an unprecedented detail in our country and at the same time to give a remarkable boost to citizen science.

On March 1 at 6.30 pm at the Fàbrica del Sol, a researcher at the Catalan Institute of Ornithology will provide a briefing on how to participate in this project. The day will end with a field trip to practice the acquired knowledge.
