This BIRDUP scoring system is incredibly simple, simply ranking birds by their prevalence of observations within a state.

\[\gdef\nBird{🦃} \gdef\nState{🗽} \gdef\nTotal{N} \gdef\nJoint{📋}\]

It uses observation records from the eBird database1. Each observation is for a specific species of bird in a specific state.

  • Let $N$ be the total number of observations in the data.
  • Let $\nBird$ be the total number of observations of a specific bird species or genus.
  • Let $\nState$ be the total number of observations taking place in a specific state.
  • Let $\nJoint$ be the the joint observation count: the total number of observations of that specific type of bird in that specific state.

Here, the Bird Score for a pair of state and bird is simply

\[\text{prevalence} = \frac{\nJoint}{\nState}\]

Note that this is not the same as determining which bird is most populous within the state. Firstly, I’m counting the number of observation records of each type of bird. Someone sees a flock of 1000 sparrows? That’s one observation record. Someone sees a single Eagle? One observation record. Secondly, these records come from voluntary observations, not some careful bird census. There’s a bias towards records of birds that live near people and which people actually care enough about to jot down. So you can think of this metric as measuring which type of bird people most commonly notice.

Table of contents

In the tables below, indicates that the bird genus is represented among actual state birds.
indicates that the bird is the actual state bird for that state.
indicates a bird that is non-native and so excluded it form. A lack of * does not necessarily mean the bird is native.
