In this post, I use k-means clustering to identify clusters of bird species based on frequency of observations per month. I use bird sightings in Allegheny County from eBird.
This will be a quick post on cumulative bird observations in Allegheny County. Cumulative graphs show overall trends, seasonality, and quirks in how the data was recorded. They are also fun to turn into animated gifs with gganimate.
In this post I will do some exploratory analysis on eBird data. I’ve picked up birdwatching as a hobby during quarantine, and eBird has a ton of cool data on bird sightings.
Over the winter I became interested in birding. Sitting in your back yard doing nothing but watching birds fly around is quite relaxing. Naturally I am looking for ways to optimize and quantify this relaxing activity.
