[Solved] List Birds by Family
Not sure if you have this feature already so...
Could you add a feature in the Reports section, to list birds by family and within a region?
Selfish reason for this of course is that I am creating an Anki deck of likely birds to see in Belize next Feb and I want to add a tag to each Anki note to identify the family to which the bird belongs. However, the source that I am using is a bit old. So I know that it has some birds in the wrong family and the only way to cross check currently is to go to each bird in eBird to find the family.
You're the best, Jeff!
I was trying to figure out how to do this for just 1 family at a time but your guidance gives me a much better output.
Plus who would have thought that actually watching/reading the instructions would be better than just banging away at a preceived problem. Thanks to your video I was able to tweak the report output nicely and I can continue to create accurate notes for my Belize Birds Anki Deck.
Speaking of Anki, yes it is a great resource. For this deck I am creating notes/cards that have a photo, sometimes with an arrow to highlight a salient feature and perhaps a sound recording on 1 side; and then the common and scientific name on the reverse. I have attached a photo of an image of one note.
