Special note for those adding bird records

Bird records are treated differently than many other taxonomic groups at the NHIC because they often are observed at somewhat random locations away from breeding or concentration sites (i.e. at sites that are not important for the conservation of the species).

To help us document which records truly are the most important, please add a value for the field "Breeding Bird Evidence" to all bird records , even if it is "none". Without this field filled out, we cannot use the record in most cases.

In addition, if you are also entering your bird records to eBird, please try to indicate this in the submission to iNaturalist to help us sort out duplicates later on. One way to do this is to add the eBird checklist link using the "associated observation" data field.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us.
