This browser extension provides a number of enhancements for the eBird review web pages. I wrote the extension for my own use, but am now sharing it. Note that eBird review web pages are available only to eBird reviewers.

The extension works on Firefox and Chrome, desktop or laptop. I'm sorry I am not equipped to make extensions for Apple products. I'm also sorry that neither Firefox nor Chrome have much support for extensions on mobile devices.

To install in your browser, just click the appropriate link above, and then "Add" or "Get".

Enhancements for the traditional review page

The figure below identifies the features provided by the extension for the traditional review page.

Enhancements for Quick Review

There are six enhancements for Quick Review, five of which appear on one line just below the top panels, as illustrated below.

Enhancement for the History page

There is one addition to the History page.

At the upper right corner is a link labeled “eBird species map for season”. This is the same map link as described under Enhancements for Quick Review, and it shows distribution of accepted records for the species in the vicinity of the checklist location, during the months around the checklist's date.

All links provided by this extension open in new windows (or new tabs). I advise against following links forward or backward from any of these windows; it gets confusing. For best results, just close the window when you finish with it and go back to the original window.

I also have some other browser extensions that could be of interest.
