How does one join?

After 15 minutes of going around in circles, I cannot find a simple site to sign up. Help. Should be obvious?

eBird has no real membership - no fees, no meetings - and is as participatory as you wish (or not).

JW provided a basic response to your question and sent you to the correct page to establish an account in eBird or any of several other birding projects at Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology (CLO) as well as other partner organizations.

However, you do not really need to "join" to enjoy many of the opportunities at eBird or the other projects. Explore the data, view the maps, create bird lists for your yard or a vacation spot. Even so your birding observations will offer a greater contribution to science as you delve further into the CLO web pages.

I hope that you do join eBird and then enjoy good birding every day,

If you don't already have a Cornell Lab sign in username you can create yours via eBird here:
