    Have been to the Downloads page but could not find the above. I have Windows 10 and 64-bit laptop. I have records from 1985 on and would like to put them on E-bird.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi Jean,

    Thanks for posting. The eBird toolkit was rolled into Birder's Diary in v4.1. 

    Watch this video to learn how to upload/download sightings.

    Hi! Jeff. i uploaded 2 checklist to E-bird successfully by following the video. When I went to Manage Checklists/Download on E-bird my screen did not match the video. Even stranger is that the checklists were still visible in BD and on E-bird without importing it back!

    BTW had a terrific trip to Costa Rica February 23 to March 5!

    Hi Jean,

    Uploading your sightings to eBird does NOT remove them from BD. So that is all you needed to do.

    Yes - eBird recently changed their look/feel on the website. So the Download option is in a different place. Look under the Checklist Tools dropdown on the upper right of your Checklist in eBird for the Download option.

    Hi! Jeff. Thanks for your quick response! To clarify: I only have to upload my sightings to E-bird and the download button on E-bird is only used to import a sighting that is in E-bird but not BD-like a shared E-bird sighting from a friend. The video left me thinking I had to re-import the checklist back into BD. Since my Lifelist in BD is entered by sighting order & not taxonomic order, I was concerned that the re-importing would affect my lifelist order. My mind does strange things when I awake during the night & can't get back to sleep

    Thanks again for the terrific service! Love BD!
