Australia has about 800 species of bird, ranging from the tiny 8 cm Weebill to the huge, flightless Emu. In most gardens around Australia you will find an abundance of birds visiting flowers, singing in trees and sometime building nests. Many people are keen bird watchers and photographers. Come along and join this project to display the wonderful world of Birds.

    Regarding my last post, it's not easy to fix these things on Bowerbird. I got through ?5 Wood Duck sightings and gave up. But I will be there on the other side.

    Hi Anna, I'm glad you've decided to join the move to iNaturalist and I hope the responses here get you over the hurdle of joining. I've been watching the transfer closely and monitoring potential problems such as taxonomic issues (on Bowerbird, species lists couldn't be updated and some were missing). So far, the iNaturalist community has been very helpful with our transferred Bowerbird records. Folks we don’t yet know are updating the species that we couldn't. Your problem was ducks – most of the Anatidae were missing – yes a big problem! I know you know the southern ducks and so do I. So, in preparation, I’m going ID all your Wood Ducks, Teal etc. back to family level on Bowerbird. And I’ll join you on the other side to get them up to species level (although I suspect there a hoard of birders who will jump in first). Okay?

    Hi Anna Lanigan, this is Scott from iNaturalist. I've been helping folks with the 'assisted migration' to iNaturalist. I've put together a brief document on 'Getting Started with iNaturalist for Bowerbird Users' which includes 'Part 1: Making an iNaturalist account & requesting ‘Migration Assistance’ from iNaturalist' in PDF form: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9a6z1mz5uqfgede/Getting%20Started%20with%20iNaturalist%20for%20Bowerbird%20Users.pdf?dl=0 And Google Doc form: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Vl1RQ_e-PwsTzoCUhen7zwfc4TfNORqpci1MGdtSmG4/edit?usp=sharing I hope this helps. Also don't hesitate to email help@inaturalist.org with any questions

    Hi Anna, I have an account with iNaturalist. You need a user name that is lower case and has no spaces. Mine is irene_r and my password has 8 letters, two of which are capitals. I emailed my request to have BowerBird records transferred and it couldn't have been easier. I was even able to track them via a link thanks to Scott Loariie. I'm still learning about the new site and as yet haven't uploaded any new sightings - but - if you want to email me for moral support, please do. irener@tpg.com.au
