If you like to keep track of the birds you see, either casually in your backyard or more seriously as a birder, there's a wonderful site called eBird.org that will let you record your observations and contribute to global bird monitoring:

https://ebird.org/home

eBird is sponsored by Cornell University, and you can create a free account in just a minute. You can keep a private list for your backyard (say), or contribute your observations at a local "hotspot" -- a public location such as a park that everyone can visit. If you want to see what birds have already been found in your local area, just zoom in on a local hotspot and check out the current list.

This is precisely what I predicted.

Reactionaries: "People aren't getting outside enough because of technology!"

... then Pokémon Go is released ... and then this is released.

Technology can bring us closer to the natural world. It all depends on how you use it.

It's too bad I can't track a Bullockornis because they're extinct.

I just don't think it should be swept under the rug that easy. The changes already coming are going to be bigger and even more unpredictable. If what about technology were as true, we wouldn't have seen obesity rates skyrocket decades ago and refuse to budge down closer to the levels seen before then. As technology advanced even further since the 70s or 80s, our population as a whole only became more obese along with it this whole time. Even today, I still heard them talking about a report on the radio that concluded that people aren't moving around as much because of convenient services like download streaming and online meals. And we aren't even at the tipping point yet.

We can only continue to hope that eBird.org will accept and promulgate my singular sightings of the rare Fillaloo Bird here in San Diego. I can't get anyone to accept it.
