I have noticed the halt in the transfer of data from eBird to Birdata also, 
nothing seems to have happened in that regard for several years. I have no idea 
why, but I have a related question - if you submit a list to eBird, and it (one 
day) gets transferred to Birdata, what happens if later you correct or update 
that list, will the corrections ever be translated over to Birdata? Or does it 
only ever take a snapshot of new lists each time a transfer happens? I can see 
it would be fiendishly complicated to connect the two databases seamlessly.
