About this app

eBird Mobile makes it easy to record the birds you see in the field, and seamlessly link these observations with eBird--a global online database of bird records used by hundreds of thousands of birders around the world. This free resource makes it easy to keep track of what you see, while making your data openly available for scientific research, education, and conservation. eBird Mobile is the only app that passes information directly from the Android device to your eBird account on the web.

- View your Life, Year, and Month lists for any region or nearby location.
- Full global taxonomy based on The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World.

- Checklists customized for your location and time of year, showing most likely species based on eBird data.
- Real-time feedback on whether a sighting is rare in the area.
- Quick entry tools to make note-taking faster than ever before.
- GPS enabled location plotting and tracking options.
- Map tools that show you hundreds of thousands of eBird Hotspots.

I love this app, except, for now, it is hung up and i can't put in a location for a sighting. I just keep on getting an error of updating list, which never happens. Also, i have to agree with another reviewer, it would make more sense and easier for the user to enter one sighting at a time rather than compile a list to submit (which isn't working anyway). Also, i don't understand the interaction between Merlin and eBird. It would be easier if a sighting verofied through Merlin flowed through

Want to like this app but it isn't great. It's cumbersome and not intuitive. Why can't I just upload a sighting? Why can't I just keep a list of sightings rather than a timed track of birding? Why can't I just pick a point on the map to save instead of running a track? If I (millennial) dont find this app easy to use nor intuitive, then how would an elderly person who is actually an avid birder ever figure it out?

Great app, love the Cornell Lab of Ornithology! Only issue is that on Android, ebird won't import previous observation from before installing the app, or of you delete and reinstall the app. Also, I cannot share the checklist after I have submitted the checklist. Another bug is that you cannot upload photos on the ebird app. Not a huge issue for me, since I process photos on my computer before adding it. I think that would be a huge plus if you could optimize these things for Android! Thanks!
