Hi Adam,

I think that this isn't really the purpose of using eBird. Remember that
all the data in eBird is available for researchers to use to be able to say
things about trends in bird populations. It's great that is has added
benefits for birders to keep track of lists, but if we start putting a
whole bunch of records without location or date attached then that is data
of limited or no value clogging up their database and making work for the

Happy to be corrected if I'm wrong, but that's my take on it. I've cc'd Mat
Gilfedder who is involved in the Australian part of the project, so you may
get a more authoritative answer from him.

Personally I'd go the slow route and transfer your notebooks. So much
valuable data there that could help birds!
