eBird’s data quality process ensures that your data are useful for the millions of people that use eBird resources each year. From automated data filters to a global team of bird experts, eBird’s data quality approach ensures that every record passes through a rigorous evaluation process. This focus on maintaining reliable, accurate data is essential in making eBird one of the most valuable global datasets on bird distribution and abundance.

All unusual observations are evaluated by eBird reviewers – birding experts who volunteer their time to manage filters, review records, and communicate with eBird users. Reviewers are selected for their expert knowledge of local birds and/or eBird, and ability to communicate that knowledge with others.

You have a friend in Ohio who will review any rare or unusual bird sightings you report when you submit an eBird checklist. Check the list above for the reviewers in each Ohio county.

Please send questions, comments, or concerns to eBird reviewers:
If you have the email address for a reviewer, you may, of course, use that address. Either way, be sure to include you name, location, county, and, if you have it, a link to the checklist you are discussing. If you know which reviewer you want to contact, you may put “Question for [reviewer name]” or “Please forward to [reviewer name]” in the subject line. The Ohio eBird checklist review management team monitors this email address and will work to get a response to you as quickly as possible.
