Doug Robinson ranks 6th in the world on eBird for the greatest number of checklists submitted.
An astounding 43,180 - as of 20 hours ago.
If we assume eBird launched January 1, 2002, then its been around for 5,907 days, which would mean Doug has submitted an average of 7+ checklists every day for the past 16 years, 2 months, and 4 days.
