Burchell's Coucal is definitely there...I'm too lazy to check the rest, but watch out for spelling...

I see my Afrikaans list has also upped-and-left. If I was Afrikaans sprekend, I'd be very %#$@ed off.

Yes, not happy about my afrikaans Index, since I've leaned most of the name in afrikaans, but my english is improving every day.

At least the Afrikaans name still features on the bird's page with the info.

If I type in Coucal, only Coppery-tailed, White-browed, Senegal van Black.

If I type in Burchell's, only Courser, Sandgrouse and Starling.

If I type in Burchell's Coucal, it says: Not Found!

I was so happy to get all the birds back and now little list can grow!

No not me clever, it's your clever thinking about the "language" that found me the "ALL" under regions.

:k :k :k :k

I just found that "my list" is now in afrikaans too, after I chose the correct language option (thanx to Hunty).

Before the update "my list" was just available in english and some of the names I had no idea what it was.....

The past weekend in Dinokeng I could put my eBirds to good use.

I listed everything we saw it was nice to see without much hassle, all the birds we saw what day in the region.

I think I'm really starting to understand the whole eBirds App now and getting the most out of it.

I must add, that the new update made it much more user friendly.
