adding old sighting to ebird
I am new to eBird and would like to add my paper records to the data list. However most of these are of just one bird (because I only paper record the first time I saw the bird) and of course multiple dates. How is the best way to add to my list?

If you know the date and location of each sighting you can enter them individually as Historic. Enter date and location for each sighting but you can omit start time, duration etc. Answer no to the question are you submitting a complete checklist. This method would be of some use to eBird.
If you wish to simply add these sightings to your life list using only one list then that method can be found here;
If you choose this method you can add date and location in comments. This method would be of no use to eBird.
