Who can see my "Tracks" for any bird trips I take?

With tracking enabled on any ebird submission, the entire exact route is available at least to me. I am concerned that photographers, who may not have a birds best interest at heart, could follow my exact steps, should I or anyone else, spot an endangered species and report it.

I am not familiar with this tracking method you describe, but a couple months ago eBird put in place a new feature that will automatically hide sensitive species from being shown publicly on your lists. You will still be able to see your full list but other people will not see you reported an endangered bird.

You can read more about it here and see a list of all the birds that will have their sightings hidden:

As I understand it, nobody except eBird Headquarters can see your tracks (at least not at this point). So nobody should be able to know exactly where you've been and follow your steps to a vulnerable bird.
