NatureCounts allows participants in citizen science programs in Canada to submit their sightings to Birds Canada.

The NatureCounts app is the complement to the NatureCounts web site operated by Birds Canada (https://naturecounts.ca). The app can be used by participants in select citizen science programs to submit their bird sightings. Participants are required to obtain a free account on NatureCounts in order to use the app. Your sightings from citizen science programs help Birds Canada achieve its mission to conserve wild birds. Observations from all participants and results from the survey programs can be accessed on the NatureCounts web site.

Note that we are currently supporting data submission for Breeding Bird Atlas projects, and we hope to add more surveys in the future.

I’ve been trying to use this app for uploading Ontario Atlas data but it’s always tells me I’m off line... which I’m not.

Needs Work

Always glitchy and way harder to submit data than it needs to be. Needs a lot of work.

I’ve downloaded and tried this app several times. This time it’s telling me I’m offline when I’m not and I cannot submit my drafts of which I have several. There is no where to find information on this or what’s going on.

Developer Response ,

The latest release should be an improvement. iOS users are still facing some challenges trying to submit the data, but we are working on a fix for this and hope to have a new version ready within a few days. We are still aware of several issues, but we are working through them in order of priority.
