eBird is now World-Wide!
That’s right, industrious birders can now enter sightings from anywhere in the world into eBird. One of the issues with the world-widification (no, that is not a word) is that eBird does not necessarily have someone checking on the accuracy of the sightings being reported. See, for example, the all-time top hundred list of birders in Kazakhstan with the most recent bird reported from each birder. Somehow I think that American Crow, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Black Guillemot, Virginia Rail and Yellow-rumped Warbler are all a bit unlikely in Kazakhstan.
