Hi David:

If you choose the "Explore Region" option in ebird, you can type in a
County or a State. That will bring up a page showing recent species seen
in that region. There are several tabs in two sets at the top you can then
choose, including a useful bar chart and also high counts for each
species. My favorite is the illustrated checklist. The high counts of
course only include those entered into the database, so may not be the
actual high count for the region.
