When working on the wiki for NYS eBird Hotspots I continually compare the
previous bar chart list with the current one and can spot any new additions
and/or deletions by species. By going to the maps or the 'Overview' I can
then determine the date the species was added to each county. Some are from
newly submitted checklists from several decades ago.

This is not easy to see on the eBird.org website. On the Overview page you
can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species was added from a checklist
dating from months or years ago it won't appear at the top of the list.

Green represents a New York State first and yellow shows species added for
the first time this year.
