On 11 June 2021 The Associated Press reported:
The pandemic that put much of normal life on pause -- stopping travel and shutting people in their homes -- also afforded more time for many families to study the wildlife in their own backyards. Cornell University's records show a boom in amateur bird-watching. The number of people submitting eBird checklist -- recording their bird sightings -- was up 37 percent in 2020 compared with the previous year. The annual 'big day' event, when people are encouraged to submit sightings during spring migration (this year, on May 8), also set participation records.
