I haven't played with ebird much, but I believe only the user can see data 
they've entered into "personal" sites, as opposed to "hotspots". Is there any 
reason why one couldn't create a personal site called "Australia" and enter the 
life list as one big survey? Then it would (I assume) be able to display the 
life list, targets, etc, while you work your way through the note books 
entering the data into public hotspots.

Can anyone confirm whether this would work?
