The 21st editon of European Bird Census Council (EBCC) Conference was held from 8 to 13 April 2019 in Évora, Portugal, organised by LabOr-Laboratory of Ornithology (ICAAM, University of Évora).

“EBCC conferences are held every three years, bringing together people involved in bird monitoring, research and conservation across Europe and beyond. Topics are varied, ranging from the results of new common bird monitoring programs, waterbird monitoring and atlases, studies of causes of population change, demography or distribution in European birds, studies of the effectiveness of conservation action and the impact of government policies, new technologies, methods or analytical techniques, the use of birds as indicators, and the development of citizen science projects.”
