During the second quarter of 2022 (April, May, and June), the Collaborative submitted 581 checklists from 7 countries (China, Costa Rica, Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago, Saint Lucia, the United Kingdom, and the United States).

The 2022 year list is up to 1,124 species.

The life rises by 11, to 4,124 species:

The Collaborative has not eBirded Greenland, but not may people have. Only 279 birders have submitted fewer than 1,400 checklists, and those checklists include 78 species. That said, there are 106 hotpots. However some of those hotspots (e.g., Inugsuarmiut Fjord) have no checklists, likely making them literally and figuratively some of the coldest hotpots on eBird.

Note that the Collaborative List will now be updated quarterly rather than monthly. Please adjust your calendars accordingly.

Good Birding!

Jason Crotty is a birder, lawyer, and occasional writer currently living in Portland, Oregon with his wife and daughter. A Bay Area native, he started birding while working at a large law firm in San Francisco, but birds less frequently now that there's a kid around, so he writes instead. Jason started at 10,000 Birds with a few guest posts and signed on as a beat writer in March 2017. He is particularly interested in the intersection of law and birding (especially the Endangered Species Act), other bird-related federal litigation, and federal public lands. Jason's writing has also appeared in BirdWatching, Birding, and Birder's Guide, both online and in print.
