30 Dec 2017: The species list for Brisbane Biggish Year
 

I’ve been through the eBird records for Brisbane City Council area, and I reckon about 253 species are possible in my Biggish Year. I’ve compiled the list below, and to make it more exciting I’ve emulated the USA code system, where Code 5 are the rarest, and Code 1 the commonest. From the total of 378 species recorded in eBird for Brisbane so far, I have classified them as follows:

Code 1: 166 species

Code 2: 65 species

Code 3: 40 species

Code 4: 37 species

Code 5: 70 species

This is a work in progress – comments to r.fuller@uq.edu.au welcome! And of course, if you find any Code 5 rarities and tell me about it, I would be delighted!
