Thank you for being a part of eBird last month. The *|HTML:OCTSP|* species you reported on your *|HTML:OCTLIST|* eBird checklists in October helped eBird continue to grow. Explore your October checklists here.

Monthly eBird Pro Tip: Searching for something new? Look for the bullseye next to species names in eBird Mobile Explore. This icon highlights “Target Species”—species you haven’t yet reported to eBird. Edit your Target Species preferences to highlight species needed for your county, state, and year lists, and even your life list!
