The future of Global Shorebird Counting data sharing

Data submission is progressing well, but having data being shared seems to be more challenging than organising the whole event. Most of the participants have already been using eBird, some of them were new to eBird. Some participants don’t even want to use eBird for various reasons.

Before starting the preparation for the next World Shorebirds Day, it would be useful to hear what you think about data sharing. Whatever solution will be used, the registration process cannot be excluded. That makes our checklist ours.

eBird already offered an even stronger support for the next special day. The World Shorebirds Day eBird Portal will soon be opened what makes data sharing much simpler.

The Global Shorebird Counting page on our website will soon be redesigned, based on the constructive feedbacks or critics.

Looking forward to hear your comment!

  1. I am new to ebird, too, but I really liked it – and even submitted another bird list from this weekend. But I would like to know how can I access the countings of the other people who participated. Or the data will be posted here? I really would like to see the big worldwide picture of the shorebirds!

    • Yes, we are preparing a complete summary of the weekend, but we allowed us a couple of weeks to do this, as time is needed for some for data submission. I ask your patience. 🙂

      • Thank you for your answer, take all the time you need! I am glad there will be a summary – no need to hurry.

  2. With low tide occurring only once in daylight hours, it’s difficult to do several counts on the narrow time frame allotted. Besides it was too rough on those days to boat to the one area, so i had to postpone it until calmer weather. I hope it will still be included.

  3. Your very own eBird portal! That’s terrific. Good idea. So, it is a website like the Great Backyard Bird Count? Where that website feeds entries into eBird? Very good.
