What are needs alerts?

We've just launched a new tool that will help birders find new birds at the state level--the eBird State Needs Alert. By subscribing to this alert, you'll get an email alert every day highlighting the birds that have been reported in a state that you haven't seen before. This tool compares all the birds you've reported in a state with the new reports coming in, and then sends you a list of the reports for species that you have not yet personally reported to eBird. This tool will make it easier for you to keep abreast of recent records of birds you might want to see in a given state that might not necessarily be rare enough to make it to the eBird Notable Birds Google Gadget.

The best thing about this particular tool is its ability to personalize your eBirding experience. By subscribing to a state needs alert, you'll get personalized emails showing recent records of birds you 'need' in a state. Once you report the species, it will no longer appear on your particular alert. This tool is obviously most useful in your home birding state, but also for surrounding states where you might do a lot of birding. You can subscribe to as many alerts as you like, or just view them online.
