When will eBird finish the exotics update?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know when eBird is going to finish the exotics update? Specifically having domestics, exotics, etc. no longer show up in life lists by default. I did a bit of digging but couldn't find any info or updates.

They said they were supposed to finish during the winter, so I would think sometime soon, but who knows?

I noticed for our county Whooping Crane is listed with everything else, while a nearby county has it listed under Provisional.  Of course now I can't find it.  

 

Found it - https://ebird.org/region/US-MI-149?yr=all&m=&rank=lrec

My old Whooping Crane sightings from last year are now listed as provisional. But the one from this weekend (at the same spot) is listed as natural. Still some kinks to work out apparently.

My life count has fallen to 408. The three removed were African Collared-Dove, Graylag Goose, and Swan Goose.

Interestingly, one of my sightings of Indian Peafowl is marked as provisional, so that one counts, and I had seen naturalized Muscovy Ducks in Florida.

I had seven removed from my county list: Mute Swan, African Collared-Dove, Graylag Goose, Red Junglefowl, Muscovy Duck, Swan Goose, and Indian Peafowl.

Oof, that's a lot of birds off your list. Still a nice Life List
