When working on the NYS eBird Hotspots wiki I'll compare the previous bar chart list of species with the current one picking up any additions or deletions. By going to each county's 'Overview' page you can determine the date the species was added by county. Some are from newly submitted checklists from many months / years ago.
It isn't possible to spot these additions from old checklists. On the 'Overview' page you can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species wasn't added recently it won't appear at the top of the list. For each county on the NYS eBird Hotspots site click the 'Overview' link on the 'Explore a Location' line: — http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+New+York Since last update: 6 days Several species were added based on Bull's Birds of NYS © 1998 and by comparing eBird to the NYSARC Checklist of NYS Birds: • http://nybirds.org/Publications/ChecklistNYS.htm Green represents a New York State first and yellow highlights a species added for the first time over the past few months. *Chautauqua County: <http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Chautauqua>* Rock Wren (29-Nov-1986) *Nassau County: <http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Nassau>* Townsend's Solitaire (20-Dec-2017) Chestnut-collared Longspur (6-Jun-1982) *Onondaga County: <http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Onondaga>* Black-legged Kittiwake (17-Dec-2017) *Suffolk County: <http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Suffolk>* Bell's Vireo (25-Sep-1959) Azure Gallinule (14-Dec-1986) Williamson's Sapsucker (22-Jun-1996) Cassin's Vireo (19-Oct-2001) -- Ben Cacace Manhattan, NYC Wiki for NYS eBird Hotspots <http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+New+York> Facebook Discussion for NYS eBird Hotspots: Q & A <https://www.facebook.com/groups/NYeBirdHotspots/> -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NYSBirds-L 3) http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NY01 Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
