specific species alert
Is there a way to sign up for alerts for a single species? Instead of adding all my missing birds or rare birds, I would like to just get alerts for a specific species of my choosing. Thanks

Unfortunately there is not an alert in which you are able to choose a single species.

There isn't a way to do that through eBird, but if you subscribe to "needs alerts" for your area of preference, you may actually be able to get your email to filter out alerts with the name of that bird species in it. It's just a matter of setting up an email filter that strains out certain keywords for emails that come from that address (firstname.lastname@example.org), but I don't know how you would do that unless I knew what email provider you are using (Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc.).
