Welcome to myAvibase
Avibase has been graciously hosted by Bird Studies Canada, who is also my employer, for now 12 years. This year, I'll be participating in the
Great Canadian Birdathon to help them raise funds for bird conservation. I'll be joining my team, the
#PloverAchievers for a day of fun birding around Long Point,
Ontario, one of the best spots for migration in North America! Please help me help our feathered friends by donating to my
myAvibase is a tool that lets you manage your own personal bird observations from anywhere in the world, as well as create customized reports that
can help you decide on your next birding destination. Some of the functionalities of myAvibase include:
- ability to maintain several lifelists (world, country, annual lists, etc.), and to link them together so new observations are automatically added where they need to be
- tools to import your existing lifelist from a text format or directly from eBird with a simple click of a button
- tools to upgrade your lifelist to another taxonomic authority or highlight potential problems related to taxonomic treatment
- reports and maps showing you how many new species you can expect in different parts of the world, and at different times of year, so you can plan your next birding trip
- view checklists for a region that highlights your own observations or your target birds
You must be signed up to use myAvibase with your own observations. You can however use the demo checklist to test to functionalities.
Please note that the checklists and associated data for the guest account will be reset every day. Feel free to enter anything you would
like and test the reporting functions.
I am offering myAvibase as a completely free service. Please note however that I am largely unable to provide personalized support. If
you find problems or would like to make suggestions on how to make this tool even better, please do contact me, but be
aware that I may not be able to respond in a timely fashion, or not at all.
