Discrepancy between Top 100 and Life list for Indonesia

My Totals for Top 100 and Life List for Indonesia show a considerable difference. Still more to put in but currently the totals differ by about 100. Any ideas....

Maybe West Papua is not showing as part of Indonesia in the Top 100 list?

John, it looks like West Papua is considered part of the 'County' of Papua by eBird (you can see this on your profile page, if you have one, by zooming in on that region)
eBird 'Counties' are not exactly up-to-date WRT current political boundaries.
Hope this helps!

Thanks Krista

Logically and avi-faunally W Papua should be part of PNG but I think that really e-Bird should reflect political boundaries if putting up 'country' lists - at the current time the Indonesian List does not cover all Indonesia.....

Anyhow I can live with this anomaly.

Appreciate your help..

Hmm..

If my W Papua list does not appear in Indonesia then if it is a 'County' of Papua should it not occur on the Papua list? I don't seem to register on the Papua list either....

Puzzled....again
