I noticed the New York Times had not one but two pieces on COVID-19 and birdwatching yesterday.
Monitoring the effects of the global changes in human behavior caused by the pandemic is exactly the kind of thing that iNat data is good for.
From my perch in Los Angeles, the decrease in traffic, noise pollution and air pollution has been dramatic. But I can’t say I’m seeing any change in wildlife personally. I do hope this somehow leads to a quieter and greener city (doubtful I suppose but we can hope).
