    Hi Jeff

     

    I ran my life list through 7.3, then 8.2 and a number of species disappear.

     

    For example - the first 4 species I came to in comparing both lists  - none of which appear to have been lumped - they all appear on the IOC master list

     

    Cape Barren Goose

    Knob-billed Duck 

    Australian Shoveller

    Musk Duck

    All together I had 2043 at the end of December 2018 under 7.3, now under 8.2 I have 2020

    Appreciate any insights.

    Matt

    Jeff - I compared the two lists to find the differences - Mallard is quite interesting.

    I think some of the above are name changes - I used Avibase to compare 7.3 with 8.2, and it appears to answer a number of the issues.

    Okay - figured it out - I need to reconcile sightings.

    Sorry for my delayed response Matt.

    Yes. Reconcile is the missing piece.

    Let me know if I can assist further.

    No problem Jeff.

     

    I do have a new issue.

    I entered a California sighting of Sooty Fox Sparrow for 1/26/19 along with two other species new for the year. The first two species had the pop up showing they were new for the year - the SFS did not. But it did not appear on the YTD CA sightings report I ran. I went to view/edit sightings and nothing came up for SFS, nor does it show up on YTD World list.

     

    Any ideas?

    Additional info - if I run a sightings report from the reports window - I get 3 sightings this year in CA.

    Hi Matt,

    Make certain you are using the latest IOC taxonomic list for Sightings Entry and for View/Edit and Reports. That is important.

    Now, go to View/Edit and search for all your SFS sightings. Sort in Order of Entry, DESC order. Be certain to click the "Clear Data Filter" button first to make sure no other settings are set. 

    Your latest SFS sighting will be on top. Is it what you expect? Location, date, etc all good? Do you have any other sightings for SFS this year?

    If you don't see it, then perhaps you didn't really enter a sighting for an SFS, but fat-fingered a sighting for something else (I do it all the time). In that case, Use View/Edit to search all sightings for 26-Jan-2019 and see what you actually get.

    Let's start there. Let me know,

    Jeff

    Hi Jeff

    I followed the instructions above and get 5 separate sightings from 1/18/19 to 2/2/19 all showing SFS and location California. But when I run reports - no sightings.

    Hi Matt,

    In that case, the report you are running is different somehow than the criteria you specified in the View/Edit Setup window. It will be something simple when you find it. Double-check all of your settings for your report. Also, make sure you are using your latest IOC taxonomy for both.

    If you still can't find it, post back here and we will schedule a screen-sharing session.

    Ok?

    Jeff
