eBird Annual Taxonomy Update

eBird will begin its annual taxonomy update tomorrow. The process may take a few days and you may observe some irregularities while it is in progress, as explained in the linked article. Take particular note of the caution "If you use eBird Mobile, we recommend submitting any Not submitted lists in advance of August 15."

Thanks Robin! I haven't submitted a lot of "not submitted" lists.

Many eBirders create lists offline and submit at a later date. The reminder is for people to submit those lists now so the birds can easily be slotted into the new taxonomic order during the transition.
