      • 309 species were listed on eBird for Kern County in 2013.
      • A new total species high count was set for one month out of twelve: May (by 18 species! - 277 species in May 2013 vs. the 259 species former high from May 2012).
      • One hundred ninety-two species plus have been reported in each calendar month at least once with two hundred two species plus having now been reported in nine calendar months at least once.
      • 416 species have been reported all time for Kern County. One new species was added to the Kern County list in 2013. A GRACE'S WARBLER was found at Cerro Coso Community College in Ridgecrest just before Noon on May 5, observed by at least nine observers, and photographed by four of those observers during its short two+ hour period of detection.
      • 300+ species have been reported for five months: May-344, September-321, October-320, and June-313, plus April with 300 joined the group in 2013.
      • Twenty-one locations now have data entered into the eBird database for every week of the year including California City Central Park, Canebrake Ecological Reserve, Cerro Coso Community College, China Lake Ponds, Desert Memorial Park, Galileo Hill, Inyokern--Middlemiss, Inyokern Water Treatment Plant, Isabella Reservoir, Kern National Wildlife Refuge, Kern River County Park, Kern River Preserve (3 specific locations-Fay Ranch Rd, Headquarters, Sierra Way), Ridgecrest Watchable Wildlife Park, and Tillie Creek Campground.
      • BLM and Kerncrest Audubon Society volunteers conducted six per season (late March through early June) point counts in Indian Wells Canyon and Sand Canyon in the now-designated Southern Sierra Desert Canyons Important Bird Area in 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012. The data from 1996-2012 Indian Wells Canyon  point counts have now been entered into the eBird database with Sand Canyon up next reflecting observations made by BLM biologists Shelley Ellis and Bob Parker, plus Kerncrest Audubon Society volunteers Linda Anderson, Dan Burnett, Terri Gallion, Ron Garland, Charlotte Goodson, Don Goodson, Ellene Gravelle, Noel Gravelle, Lisa Lavelle, Terri Middlemiss, Terry Millet, Joyce Schlachter, Joyce Seibold, Cody Sutton, Lee Sutton, Shirley Sutton, and Steven Sutton.
      • Paul Fox's data from twenty-six years worth of Los Angeles Society June/July mostly four day field trips to the Kern River Valley and Southern Sierra  Nevada were entered and have filled in numerous bar chart gaps for both Kern County and Tulare County locations covered by those trips.
      • Cliff Peterson entered numerous lists from the 1986 and other years which has added greatly to the Kern County data reflected for those years.
      • Christine Sparks and Richard Sparks entered nearly 200 lists in 2013; almost all to all for the Bear Valley Springs/Tehachapi area for numerous specific eBird hotpsot locations (e.g.: Brite Lake, Golden Hills Golf Course-abandoned/Tom Sawyer Lake, Hidden Lakes, Tehachapi Mountain Park, Tehachapi Water Treatment Plant) resulting in greatly expanded eBird coverage for the important Kern County birding region in and around Tehachap.
      • Sean Rowe and Bob Barnes have continued to enter data for 1994-2006 annual fall Kern Valley Vulture Watch counts using the Southern Sierra Research Station eBird account with Sean entering vulture data and Bob adding associated bird observations data to Sean's base lists.
