On any eBird checklist that has a map, eBird GPS track downloader provides a link by which you can download the GPS track data in a gpx format file.

Screenshot illustrating link button
The link appears directly below the thumbnail map that eBird provides.

The downloaded gpx file can be loaded into Google Earth or other GPS software.

If you open the gpx file in Google Earth, which you can do by drag and drop, you'll get this dialog:

Initial Google Earth dialog

So you want to change the dialog to look like this before you click "OK":

Final Google Earth dialog
