  1. As a newbie to iBird Pro, I am seeking suggestions on how best to use the Location field to organize my observations. For instance, I live in Gainesville, Florida, and this morning I sighted a group of bluebirds as I was driving thru town. So do I create a specific location for that address within Gainesville for this sighting, or do I create one location for all of my Gainesville sightings? I would prefer the specificity of the first option, but that means I will eventually have dozens if not hundreds of locations just within Gainesville. I realize there is no right answer, no one-size-fits-all-birders solution. But I am canvassing for how people are using locations now in iBird (and in eBird). Thanks in advance for the feedback.
  2. Search in iBird Journal

    The Search feature in Journal is a good start, but there is much more that it could do. - What if I want to quickly see which birds I have seen in the month of November (in ANY year)? - Have I ever seen a female towhee? - What birds have I seen in the month of March in forests? It looks like the database has this information for my sighitngs (as long as I have filled them in), so why can't the search page be expanded to search on every field that is part of the record? Especially helpful would be to look through to find all sightings in a certain month, regardless of year.
