Birding Boy Posted October 27, 2022 Share Posted October 27, 2022 27 minutes ago, IKLland said: I came back to this thread to refresh my mind on the awesome tips here, and this post brings up a question that i've had for a while. If you have species while birding that you only heard, I know that Ebird still wants you to report them, and I always do. But, is it worth it to state in the comments of that species "HO" or "Heard only"? Or should you not waste time writing that for every species that you only heard? I usually do write it out when I only heard something, but it can take up time. Is it worth it, or only do it with something rare? Typically, I won't add notes for a heard only bird. There are exceptions of course, like is it rarity, or just an uncommon bird that other people may be interested in observing, then I'll add notes. That's just me though, I know there's people on this forum who are a lot more consistent with designating heard only. 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
