  1. Species 2021/All-time World - 18,603/29,260 U.S. - 9,642/13,968 Michigan - 87/396 County - 1/1
  2. I thought initially I found my first Turkey Vulture of the year, but quickly realize it wasn't rocking. Best views I've ever gotten.
  3. BirdsEye NA you can get down to as small as 1 mile diameter for birds sighted locally and it will show where on map they were reported. Shows historical, recent (adjustable timeframe) and needs, if you have it tied to eBird account. You can even click on the location dot and it will show a list of birds seen at that location.
  4. If I’m understanding the first one you can put an “x” in the species, then tap it to change to 1.
  5. iBird Favorites list eBird i also have an Excel sheet that I update with exports from eBird.
  6. County lifer - Barrow's Goldeneye.
  7. ...and then some!! Thank you. 😃
  8. Same advice I gave my teenage nephew about politics, don't worry about what you call yourself or what you think others will call you. Enjoy the birds how you want to enjoy them. My advice is start up eBird as soon as you can. You never know if you want to get in to lists, or chasing, or Top 100. Hard to go back and catch up, if you eventually do. Even if you don't the data is a great way to contribute to science.
  9. County first Barrow's Goldeneye was found on open part of Kalamazoo River today. I didn't even stop at this area earlier in the day to check. Drove right by it. Thankfully another birder did happen to stop. Second coastal bird found within this 4-5 mile stretch of the river in the past two weeks. Likely the Gull Lake/Sherman Lake bird from Kalamazoo relocated.
  10. I thought the nail on the bill was too narrow for Greater Scaup, but everything else says Greater to me. A vastly superior birder to me had a Greater around this same area later in the day.
  11. More "in fall" than "in flight".
  12. You can also upload to YouTube, and you can embed the link in the checklist comments. It will then show as a video in the eBird checklist. It won’t show in the “My Media” as a video.
  13. Now that would be the answer to my question. Wasn’t aware swans didn’t get that far south.
  14. Sorry you can’t use ABA, but you can use Country. I have a bunch of lists I track. Mainly county though. I’ve not done much state wise (20 birds more than my county list). I like finding/seeing new stuff in the county and pushing our county up the list of counties in Michigan. Last year I did a Big Yard so I kept an eye on my position in the state for yard lists.
  15. If you got to Target Species there is an option for species photographed. Should give you a list for the area chosen that you don’t have a photo in eBird for. Example you can go to ABA area and click on Target Species.
  16. A lone American Kestrel was my 5000th eBird checklist on Saturday.
  17. I think this was put in as Ring-necked Duck originally, but now duck sp. Looks a lot like Canvasback shape in the head and bill. Redhead markings on bill though. https://ebird.org/checklist/S80619342
