eBird Economics: How Much Would You Pay to See Birds?

10,000 Birds

How much do birders value a birding experience? The economic “impact” of a birding festival can be estimated by looking at expenditures of attendees ( e.g., hotel rooms, meals, souvenirs, transportation costs, etc.). But there are few transactions that can be analyzed to determine how much value birding experiences, themselves, provide to a birder. I emailed the authors and asked about their research and their use of eBird data. Birders derive “value” from birding.
