Joint Birdforum Lockdown List - April and May

As per the previous thread https://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=387738 -

A joint list for folk in self-quarantine, lockdown and the like. Most of us now probably! Post your daily sightings, additions, photos even if you want. I'll keep an updated total for Europe at least initially. Starting from scratch - all birds from April 1st only.

Rules should be simple but essentially any garden birds or birds seen on local exercise only (foot or cycle) from home, no essential car journeys though sorry. Fire away ...

Nope keep it in. I'll do a combined list for Europe, and we can do a separate list for each other continent thereafter (it's just a nightmare trying to reconcile bird names and other issues doing a 'whole world' one initially.)

Will anyone be keeping track of an Asia list? Though, will there even be anyone else besides me?
I can try to keep track of the Asia list if no one else is. It'd be fun to combine all the lists at the end of the month and see what we get.

Attached the list for Europe for 1st April, from garden, or on foot or cycle from home (with Tawny Owl sneaking in too).

With an additional 7 (8 if you were to count Am Herring Gull) for N America and 15 for Asia I make that 122 or so ...


Absolutely no idea what targets should be for UK, Europe or World by months end - 220, 300, 500??

If it is just yourself, keeping track of it via posts on here won't be too difficult I guess. See how it goes as the month progresses!

btw are the bird species above likely to be IOC recognised names?

Tree Sparrow
Eurasian Collared Dove

I submit regular eBird checklists (minimum 1 per day) so keeping track of my list will be no problem. I'm glad to help keep track of the rest of the Asia list if any others join in.

I think most of the species would be IOC recognized names though I'm using Clements. I can edit the post so they're all IOC recognized if you would prefer that.
(eg Large-billed Crow = Eastern Jungle Crow)

That would be cool thanks.

I'm using bubo and there is a function to combine lists (not used it myself before) but think it may be simpler to just keep continents separate for now, looking for differences manually (easy enough at the moment) and see how it goes (so no need to convert to IOC, we can do it at the time if we need to ... ?)

Ok. So I'll just leave my stuff in Clements for now, but I am going to make a list of all the ones that are different between the two. So far Large-billed Crow (Eastern Jungle Crow), Asian Pied Starling (Pied Myna), and Barn Owl (Eastern Barn Owl)
