Change Species

Still working on gull ID? Even gotten a note from a reviewer, and not had the time to find the image on your computer and re-upload it? Have you ever uploaded a photo to the wrong species on your eBird checklist? With the new Change Species tool, swapping identifications on your lists is a breeze.

Every time you start a checklist on eBird Android, you now have the option to keep a GPS track of where you walk for your traveling counts. The ‘tracks’ automatically calculate the distance traveled and time spent eBirding—all you have to do is watch birds! Download eBird Android today.

Want to test GPS tracks for eBird iOS? eBird Partners will have exclusive early access in the coming weeks as eBird Beta Testers. Become an eBird Partner.
