Hey all. I'm looking for some help to make sure we have BC's best regions and hotspots covered in our birding app. Currently we have BC as a whole, Vancouver, Vancouver Island, the Okanagan and a few smaller hotspots (full list is here).

Where is your favourite birding spot? Would you and people you know use an app for that area if you knew it was a complete list of all the local species?

Would love to get your feedback! :)

Yes eBird is a great source but I would also consider purchasing the Cannings book "Birdfinding in British Columbia" published by Greystone.

Ah that book looks great. Just what I'm looking for.

Maybe I used the wrong wording as I was looking more for personal favourites as opposed to highest quantity of entries into eBird.

Anywhoo, you got me . The Russel Cannings book looks perfect!
