I'm forwarding this invite from LA Birders, who have hosted some really
great webinars since Covid hit, many applicable to birding far and wide.
These are streamed live on YouTube and then posted on their YouTube site a
few days later.

Webinar: eBird Best Practices for Los Angeles and Beyond

With Justyn Stahl

Tuesday, March 15, 2022 7:00 PM on YouTube

As of late February 2022, Los Angeles County has produced over 431,000
complete eBird checklists, making it the platform's most active
county-level region in the world. With a growing number of new eBirders, it
is important for active users to understand and employ eBird’s best
practices — not only to improve your data but also to guide others.

This presentation will discuss how to improve the quality of your data:
choosing the best location, which protocol is appropriate, how to correct
distance, how to best document rarities, and why we encourage you to share
lists on group outings. We’ll pull back the curtain on the review process
and explain filters and why birds and counts get flagged. We’ll go over
media uploading, and how to make your photos and audio more valuable with
media tags and ratings. We will also discuss how to explore the eBird
database and find new places to go, and the differences between the eBird
app and the website itself.

The free Cornell Lab course eBird Essentials
<https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/product/ebird-essentials/> should be
viewed prior to this talk, especially for those new to and/or unfamiliar
with eBird.

good birding,
