Can you easily split one checklist into two?
Occasionally I'll walk for a number of miles, and cover 2 or even 3 hotspots, and I find it convenient to just keep one checklist. However, I know that the data is more valuable if I'm a little more granular in terms of which species are in which hotspots. So is here an easy way to take one "big" checklist and essentially split it into 2 or 3 smaller checklists for different hotspots? If there isn't an easy way, what is probably the simplest solution?

The answer is no but in some cases it is best to make one checklist and if you see any species of interest (rare, uncommon, endangered) the. Report them also on separate incomplete checklists at the individual hotspots. Also if you cover a large area often you can use comment to specify where birds were seen. An important thing to take note of is if you change habitats that are quite different like a forest to grassland you should make totally separate checklists. Feel free to email me with any other questions from my profile.
