This interactive map shows time-animated Osprey sightings in 2013, based on data submitted to eBird. The purpose of this project was to experiment with querying the massive eBird dataset (over 150 million records) using a PostgreSQL/PostGIS database, and visualizing the results using CartoDB. I didn't put much effort into the design of this map, but the data are quite interesting on their own. Over the course of one year, these sightings reveal the actual migratory movements of the species, spreading from southern coastal areas in the winter to more northern and central regions in the summer.
Aren't birds so cool?!
