As we announced in the last newsletter,
importing your sightings from BirdTrack, eBird, Ornitho, BirdBase and
personal Excel sheets into My Birding is now possible with just a few
clicks, and the first users of the system have welcomed it.
During the import process, the system automatically manages the
taxonomic differences that exist between the various platforms and My
Birding. Last month, some of the first users imported their bird
sightings to My Birding. Of almost 5,000 different species imported only
138 were not automatically recognized, and users have voiced their
satisfaction with the overall process.
Thanks to the new tools developed over the last month, now it is even easier
to import your sightings to My Birding, check the accuracy and
consistency of your stored My Birding data and correct possible
inconsistencies. Learn more about these new tools in the “Get the Most
Out of My Birding” section below.
We encourage you to import your bird sightings to My Birding to take
full advantage of the power of HBW and the IBC combined with your
personal bird observations.
