Thanks for posting. That tool was retired and integrated into the main BD program.
Watch this video to learn how to use it.
Couple of questions. What if I want to download ebird into BD for both my wife and I but I am the one entering ebird. How can I enter my wifes sighting into BD? Can I use ABA tax list for ebird or do I need to use clements?
Also I strange thing has happened in BD. I was entering sighting using ABA 2018 tax list for Ohio. The checklilst for Ohio comes up. But if I do a search for birds in the box on the right, the tax list is mammals, not birds. Mammals was not checked on the tax list. This just started. What gives?
You can use the ABA tax list as long as all birds from your downloaded eBird list are on the ABA tax list.
To Clone the downloaded sightings to your wife, pull up the imported eBird checklist in BD, select all sightings, and click on the Clone toolbar button.
FYI - you are seeing the new v5.1 View Sightings window above - so don't be confused by the new options panel.
Concerning Mammals vs Birds on Checklist Entry... 1) bring up View Sightings Setup (F3), 2) clear all tax lists and select only Mammals, 3) Continue, 4) close the checklist window, 5) bring up View Sightings Setup again, 6) select only birds. You should be good to go.

Having problems import ebird. The system crashes
Either get error message 2147212030 microsoft agent was unable to start- this prevents opening BD when ebird is open
Error message 2147023436 the operation returns because timeout period expired-theis occurs when I import from ebird then the system crashes
Sent you email requesting times for me to get onto your computer to look at this latest set of issues.
As an aside, UPDATE... I got onto Mike's computer to correct the mammal names issue. My instructions above worked as long as I picked a taxonomy other than his Mammals taxonomy. All is working in this respect now.
