eBird: The Gamification of Birding?

Growing up in the ’90s you could definitely consider me a part of the “Pok√©mon Generation.” Throughout my childhood I played games like Sonic, Zelda, Mario, but the one that seemed to have the biggest impact on me and my friends was Pok√©mon. We spent countless hours battling, training, trading‚ÄĒbut most of all collecting Pok√©mon.

I confess to still being a fan of the series and continue to play the newest games today (while gleefully passing on “adult” shooter and sports games).

What does this have to do with birds?
