Mining eBird Data – Checklists per Week Update

The 25 January post was about the growth in eBird reporting in Oregon.

I periodically update the database with current data and was astonished at what happened in the third reporting week in February!

A little digging and i found out that Cornell jointly runs the Great Backyard Bird Count project.  It seems the GBBC used the eBird platform for reporting this year.  All of that data is now showing up in the database.

I’ve only submitted data to the GBBC a couple of times.  But i noticed the reporting output is now eBird based which is quite different than the GBBC output i remember.  No big deal to me but i wonder how annual participants feel about it.
