    I will never see this bird.

  2. E-mails have been working fine for me. I am subscribed to two daily alerts (county RBA and county needs), and they show everything reported from the last week that wasn't sent out in the previous alerts.

    This might seem unimportant, but when looking at a species map on eBird, is there a way to turn off the display of grocery stores, etc...?

    eBird doesn't use it's own mapping utility.Β  It uses Google Maps and superimposed the sightings over the standard Google layout.Β  The amount of detail you see is determined by how much you zoom in or out.

    As someone who has had to use maps a lot for website projects, I find Google Maps severely lacking in clarity. The standard OpenStreetMap tiles and those used by Mapbox are much cleaner when it comes to presenting any data that isn't a business listing, particularly waypoints (like birding hotspots) or GPX tracks (like a walk).

    One project that I want to finish building is a replacement for several of the tools on the eBird website by making requests to their API without any special apps besides a web browser. It's not too tricky to make a page that fetches your current location and shows you nearby hotspots without taking 15 seconds to load.

    This page is a proof of concept that I made a year or two ago:
    https://birds.catbirds.net/map.php

    You can either grant it your location or pan around the map and click "Fetch Locations Here" (around the center of the map). It doesn't have the fancy colored icons or filters yet, but you can view a hotspot and see sightings from the last month.

    And here's an example of the hotspot page:

  5. Two species while driving around yesterday finally bumped me up to 100, which is the slowest I've reached 100 since my first year of seriously birding in 2021.

    2020: November 10
    2021: January 31
    2022: January 11
    2023: January 11
    2024: February 17

    I don't even have a California Gull or Tree Swallow this year.

    I have photographed this bird.

    I had to double-check the code was what I thought it was because the »   Gray Heron    « could also have been it.

    I have photographed this bird before.

    We've had a pretty good string of birds that are familiar to North Americans. It feels like about 75% of them this year.
