This week Eremaea Birds joined forces with Cornell Lab of Ornithology and is now migrating all its list data (some 3.5 million records from nearly 1000 observers) to Cornell’s eBird. This process is expected to be complete by 1 February 2014. All Eremaea Birds sites have been re-created in eBird. All Eremaea Birds members, except those who opted out, are now registered with eBird and can start entering lists. eBird offers a similar range of atlas reports to Eremaea Birds such as the Hotspots Explorer which allows readers to find information on all shared sites; Range and Point maps which show species distribution; and a Recent Lists report. With this move Eremaea Birds no longer accepts lists but will remain open for Birdline reports, with the original site now being known as Eremaea Birdlines.

 If you would like a great place to keep your personal bird records and at the same time contribute to one of the world’s best citizen science projects, please register with eBird now. It is important for COG members to know that eBird records are collected by both Birdlife Australia and COG and used in each organisation’s atlas.

 Please get in touch if you would like further information about keeping lists with eBird.
