why not link eBird and Merlin?

It would be great to link the two apps: when I get help from Merlin to identify a bird, why not have that automatically create/be added to an eBird checklist. Merlin has the location, date and time, and the species.

Today, I often -- when I don't have the help of a more experienced birder nearby -- need to ID the bird in one app, then answer a series of questions in another, in order to log the observation.

This functionality is actually currently being beta tested.

That's great to hear. I've only recently found the Merlin and eBird apps and are having a great time using exploring both. Integration of the two seems like the logical progression.
