Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Changes to exotic species in eBird
Birders,

I am very excited to finally see this long-awaited development in eBird in
regard to treatment of exotic species.

News story:

eBird Help Center info:

There are now maps showing where species are native vs. introduced,
regional bird lists separating out established vs. escaped exotics, and
exotic species are now labeled as such in checklists. It's incredible to
see just how many species of birds have been moved away from their native
ranges, with some establishing and spreading and others not.

The monthly meetings of San Diego Field Ornithologists (SDFO) are currently virtual, open only to members, at 6pm on the third Tuesday of every month.

Two notable on-line resources are available for San Diego birders: the San Diego County Bird Atlas by Phil Unitt (2004) - http://sdplantatlas.org/BirdAtlas/BirdPages.aspx ; and an update of notable records for San Diego County (2002–present), compiled by Paul Lehman - https://bvaudubon.org/birding-resources/ .
