eBird checklist compiler
New version! You no longer have to download your checklists; they are automatically retrieved directly from eBird!
What it is
You can enter multiple eBird checklist subIds into eBird checklist compiler, and it will return a single Excel spreadsheet containing data from all of the checklists. This spreadsheet has one tab for counts and a second tab for comments.
A compiled spreadsheet is handy for compiling a Christmas Bird Count, or other such group count.
You might also like such a spreadsheet to summarize a trip, or multiple visits to a location, for example.
What you do
- In the “Checklist input” form above, list one or more checklist names and click “Go!”.
eBird to AviSys checklist import will fetch the checklists directly from eBird;
you no longer need to download them.
Let's say you have a checklist https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S46116491.
You can copy-and-paste just the "S46116491",
or you can copy-and-paste the whole "https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S46116491".
If you enter multiple checklists, enter them on separate lines, or else just separate them with spaces or commas.
For example you could enter
S46116491, S21594122, S48759196
S46116491 S21594122 S48759196
- Click Go! and wait for the checklists to be retrieved from eBird (it takes a while).
- You'll be prompted to open or save the generated Excel spreadsheet.
- Note: Excel may open in “PROTECTED VIEW”, displaying an “Enable Editing” button.
You will need to click this button if you want to see the row and column sums;
otherwise they are displayed as zeros.
