I had a nice surprise this morning when I logged into eBird to upload a few birds seen at my feeder.
The eBird team has updated the "View and Explore Data" page with some long-requested features.
Now, you get the same maps whether you view maps directly for one species, or make bar charts for a region or area. Good, zoom out to see the world range and zoom in to see the individual sightings. Better, click on the individual sighting locations to see when and who has seen the species at that location in the past. Best, click on an individual record and see that person's entire checklist for the day!
These changes really make 'viewing and exploring data' useful and addicting!
Well done, eBird!
