Birds of North America #2


Recommended Posts

Just a thought for those involved in the listing process, I wonder if a reverse list would be easier to manage, and view. If you start with a list of all included birds(ABA or similar) and remove the birds from the list when they're added here, then instead of seeing a growing list of birds that have already been posted, the participants would see a shrinking list of birds that still need to be added to the list. My thinking is, when you look at a list, you see what's listed...for myself, it'd be easier to see a list of birds that I could safely add to the collection, instead of looking through a list of birds already added. Just my $00.002 worth. And no, that's not a typo... more like an exaggeration of the value of my ideas. :classic_laugh:

@lonestranger On the first post of this thread are two links...one is an online list the other is a Google doc.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong the online list is an on-going record of the birds as they are added to the list. The Google doc is the ''needs'' list and as the birds are recorded /added to this thread then they are taken off of the Google doc.  ?

I see the same list twice, @lonesome55dove, the only difference I see is the order. One shows the first bird first, the other shows the last bird first. Both lists show birds already posted.

If you scroll down past the main list on the google docs, there is a needs list. It’s big right now, and I’m still updating it so it’s not in the best format. Once we get to 400 birds or so I can make it in a better format that won’t slow the doc down.

In the listmoz link all you have to do is click on one of the entries and it goes away? I accidentally clicked on 246. Common Black Hawk.

It sends it to the end of the list. I fixed it.
