A WebBirder checklist is a list of species that typically can be seen, or has been seen, at a particular location. WebBirder has checklists for approximately 800 locations around the world.
Most of the pages in WebBirder require you to have an account (which is free) to access. This allows you to do a number of exciting things like keeping track of sightings, changing the taxonomy, and much more. However, this
page allows access to users who do not have an account. This is because a user can access this page from one of the Fatbirder World Birding pages. If you arrived here from one of these Fatbirder pages, and you haven't yet created a
WebBirder account, some of the fields on the page won't apply to you. This includes the User, Begin Date and End Date fields.
WebBirder allows you, if you have an account, to enter a user, begin and end dates and WebBirder will show you if the species has been seen by the user during the range of dates you've entered. If you don't specify a user, all
sightings for the entire account are shown.
Whether or not you've seen any of the species in the list, the actual number of species shown for the location will not change. For example, let's say you select Florida. The total number of species found in Florida,
517, won't change regardless of what you enter for a range of dates and how many of those 517 species have actually been seen.
You'll notice there are two 'Seen' columns. One indicates whether the species has been seen in the checklist area. The second indicates whether the species has been seen anywhere in the world.
You can export the checklist to an Excel file or have an Excel file emailed to you, if you are on a device that doesn't support downloading to Excel. If you have the Professional Edition of WebBirder, you can request a checklist
be emailed to you in any of the following additional formats: Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF or CSV. The generated Excel file will contain either one worksheet (Standard Edition) or two worksheets (Professional Edition). The Professional
edition includes a comprehensive checklist showing bird orders, families, common names and scientific names, along with checkboxes for entering birds seen. Birds that have been seen in the checklist area will have a certain color and
birds not seen in the checklist area, but seen somewhere else in the world will have another color. This is based on the listings you have entered into WebBirder.
You can get a count of the total number of species, and the number seen, at the bottom left of this page.
