This is just a guess, but I'm thinking that they are using the eBird mobile app with the checklist in the "smart sort" mode. That classifies birds in three categories and the latter two are "infrequent" (many of the birds in that section have a "rare" symbol next to the name) and "unreported." Those latter two are based on checklists from a 20k X 20k area that includes the location being birded.
