These lessons comprise a two part workshop on best practices for using eBird data. Part I of this workshop focuses on extracting and processing eBird data with R, while Part II covers using these data to model species distributions. The workshop as a whole is typically given over two days; however, it is designed to be modular and a half-day or one-day workshop can be given based on a subset of the material. In particular, Part I and II are largely independent of each other and can be taught individually. This workshop acts as a complement to the free online book eBird Best Practices as well as an associated paper on best practices for making reliable inferences from citizen science data. The contents of this workshop are addressed in greater detail in these resources.
