Hello Ryu, pls go to settings in eBird and change the country list to Australia - them all will be fine with the species' names.

I noticed when submitting my observations on eBird that wood duck is still known as maned duck, grey teal has American spelling “gray” and hardhead is known as white-eyed duck.

If you need a bit more of an incentive, May's ebirder of the month will be drawn from eBirders who submit 5 or more complete no-X checklists on May 14th. This puts you in the running for a pair of ZEISS Conquest HD 8×42 binoculars.

Whether you only have time to do a 10-minute count in your yard or can afford to spend the whole day afield searching for local specialties, every bit counts. Lets see how well we can do as a group this year. Happy birding!
