Over a thousand counting locations

The number of registered counting locations has most probably exceeded the 1,000 target. The majority of registrations were registered during the weekend! Works are still under way to get the locations shown on the map, but it is already mind-blowing. Exact numbers to come.

However, this is just half of the job! eBird checklist sharing is also under way and already a 147 checklist have been shared and counting. Already some of the participants regrettly reported his or her failure to get out counting due to extreme weather conditions or unexpected personal issues. The majority of participants had no issues and could go out. To make sense of this counting program I ask everyone to submit records to eBird as soon as possible! The more time goes by, the more likely data submission will be forgotten.

To be able to make a summary of the first Global Shorebird Counting a Program I ask you to share your checklist with the World Shorebirds Day eBird account. Here is a quick guide how to share a checklist. Follow the steps described! The name to be shared the checklists with is worldshorebirdsday. If you have privacy concerns please contact me by email (find it under Contact menu.

Keep up the good work! You are a part of something outstanding!

  1. Totally confusing. I’m sure you know exactly what you want, but it has not come through. I already reported my results on e-bird. Some where in all that verbiage are you asking me to share my results with you????

    • Which part is confusing? Since the World Shorebirds Day has no individual eBird portal yet, I summarise the result through shared eBird checklists. Otherwise I have no access to your submitted data. Do you have privacy concerns?
