Advanced CALBIRDS Message Searching
- I wanted to announce to the listserv the launch of a more advanced
searching tool for CALBIRDS. Personally, I find the Yahoo! Groups
search functionality to be clunky, slow and doesn't return the
information I'm really looking for.
That said, I invite you mine new search interface a try:
Some examples of usage....
Search for a specific author (eg. John Sterling):
Search for a particular species (eg. Marsh Sandpiper):
* Returns species name, photo, latin name, banding code
* Returns a graph of historical references to species - great for seeing trends.
* Link to most recent eBird observation data
* Returns messages relevant, in descending order by date
Search by location (eg. Monterey):
This is a work in progress - This is a little over one days worth of
programming so please send me any bugs, suggestions, etc. I plan to
incorporate more graphs/chart data in the future as well.
