This year, we're trying to make it easier for you to view, share, and admire the checklists from your field trips. For 2019, we have developed an eBird list submission and sharing protocol to make keeping checklists easier for our leaders. Additionally, this new process should make it easier for Biggest Week participants to retrieve their list(s).
Leaders will be submitting trip lists to the BSBO eBird account. Links to those lists will be posted below. You will find the link to your trip list by choosing the date, trip, and van number or time. Not every event will post a link to a checklist. BSBO staff will do our best to post lists to this site as quickly as we can, after we receive them.
One additional positive aspect of sharing our lists (rather than everyone keeping separate lists to enter into eBird), is that by using the "share" function we are making our sightings a more robust data set for researchers to use in conservation efforts.
Tips for retrieving your eBird checklist:
1. Open your eBird account first. (This way the list will automatically upload to your shared lists.)
2. On the BWIAB website, click the link for the specific date and trip desired.
3. Go back to the "Shared Lists" section in your eBird account and click the green “Accept” button.
4. Please remember to edit the checklist to reflect what you may/may not have seen personally. Please add/remove species or adjust counts as needed.
