Use of Webcam for a Count?

It's raining outside and while eating my breakfast and looking at my laptop I began watching this webcam for a site 100 miles away.

Note that it also provides good sound quality.
First there was a Tawny Owl hooting then the pair of Ospreys mating and then various other species singing and vocalizing, easily recognised as I recognise such sounds in the field. Then it occurred to me - maybe I should make a list .....
What are readers views on making this a new category of eBird submission ?

Hi Lynden,

At the moment, eBird does not want lists made from viewing a web cam. It isn't able to support that type of data at the moment.
In the future, please try using the search function. Many others have asked the same question and it has been answered in official help pages here:

Be very cautious here, folks. I think that we are right at the point where some people will justify the use of drone mounted cameras and playback devices.

I have observed too much use of what I call 'combat camera photography'. Snap, snap, snap at M-14 rate of fire and worry about the ID back on the light table. Mike
