Deleting a species or count in eBird Mobile

Deleting a species in eBird Mobile is very easy, once you learn the tricks. While BirdLog (eBird Mobile's predecessor) allowed you to enter a 0 to delete a species count, this does not work in eBird Mobile. This is because there are very rare instances where entering a zero might be desirable. We generally do not recommend submitting lists with counts of zero.

To remove a species, you have three options:
  1. Open the comments box, hit backspace. This will delete your count and the species will no longer appear on your list once you close the comments box.
  2. If you use eBird Mobile quick entry a lot, you can subtract birds just as easily as you can add them. If you have a count of 5 Northern Cardinals, you can drop the count to 3 Northern Cardinals by typing "-2 noca". Once the count reaches zero it removes the species from the best.
  3. The best way to remove a species is through the the All, Likely, or Checked screens that show the bird list that you are entering. For iOS: Put your finger on the right side of the species name and swipe left to make the "Clear Data" option appear as in the example shown here. For Android: Press and hold on the species name, and a small window will appear that says "Clear Data"—tapping that will let you remove the species count.
