my vote is vehemently YES. With a handicapped wife my birding time is quite limited. I use the RBA *every day* to see what has been seen and to plan how to use the hour here or hour there to go check on birds that have been reported. I also check in Ebird but quite often the reporters do not post until they get home after a day's birding. To hear about an unusual or interesting bird late in the afternoon or evening or the next morning can be very frustrating when there could have been an opportunity for me to get out during the time the bird was originally being seen. I'm not sure if Ebird reporters can access the application from their smart phones and post while out in the field, but do know that Cobirders can. Having grown up with Cobirds since the 80's I would hate to see it go away.
