How do I get a location life list?
I want to see my life list for my garden. Should be easy - it's a location. But the location isn't in my world or state life list so I can't click on it from there to derive the life list. There must be another way but I can't figure out what it is!

Should be easy but it isn't!
Click on your state or county life list. Scroll down and if you see your yard on the location list click on it and it will bring up your yard life list.
If you do not see your yard on the list then click on a species that you know you have seen in your yard. Scroll down that list until you see your yard on the location list and click on it.

Thanks JW - the second approach solved the problem but I have to say that it's poor interface design on eBird's part that you have to use this convoluted 2 part approach to produce what should be a simple result - in the same way that one can readily get country and state lists...

Go to the "Explore Data" Tab on the menu bar across the top, then in the box labeled "Your Totals" you can set up your yard or other patches to see your lists (life, year, month) for those locations.

that's really helpful; I've never really dipped into the concept of 'yards' - not a term we'd use in the UK and I can see the value of patches as a way of aggregating totals within a local area. Problem solved!
