Juvenile Allen's. I couldn't manage a shot of the spread tail of this one or the adult male. But Both had the narrow "spikey" spread tail feathers.

There are 99 spuhs in eBird that don't directly correspond to a genus, family, or order (or, in a couple cases, suborder) already reportable on iNat - should I add those (or all spuhs, to be consistent with the 52 slashes that comprise an entire genus) as allowed values for this observation field? How about all the eBird forms, too (including undescribed forms, phenotypically distinct forms that may or may not be taxonomically distinct, and a few groups of subspecies that don't correspond to Clements subspecies groups)?

I'm not a birder (yet) and so I would welcome the addition of whatever you think is most appropriate! Let me know if you'd like me to add them (and what they are), or if you can figure out how to get them added. I think you should be able to edit it since you're a curator. They all should be in alphabetical order and separated by pipes |

Posted by bouteloua about 4 years ago (Flag)

Just added all the "spuhs" and forms, so there's now a total of 1326 allowed values. (I also added a note to the description on how to see the list of allowed values for people who might not be entirely familiar with observation fields - if you think that should be removed from the description, go ahead.)
Do you think it would be a good idea to put:
a. a link to the eBird Help article that explains what slashes/spuhs/etc. are, and/or
b. a link to download the eBird/Clements checklist
in the observation field description?

Posted by maxkirsch about 4 years ago (Flag)

Sounds great to all and thanks for your collaboration! Unfortunately HTML links are not currently supported in field description, but perhaps with some pressure to the site devs this could be added.

Posted by bouteloua about 4 years ago (Flag)

wow, let me know how that huge list works in this format. Also I have pasted urls into field descriptions, though they aren't clickable and may be a pain to get 'out'.

Posted by charlie about 4 years ago (Flag)

@maxkirsch, I'm confused by the addition of many that seem to be just at genus level, e.g. Accipiter sp., Alcippe sp., Amazilia sp., Amazona sp. These should already be covered by the iNat taxonomy, right? Just ID to genus and no need to add a separate observation field? Again I'm not a birder so I might be missing something. :)

Posted by bouteloua about 4 years ago (Flag)

I added everything just to be consistent, but yeah, it's probably best to remove those - I'll do that now (and also remove all the slashes that correspond to a genus with only two species). (I'll list them in a comment after this one just to keep track of them in case any of them change in next year's Clements update)

Posted by maxkirsch about 4 years ago (Flag)

Sounds great.

Posted by bouteloua about 4 years ago (Flag)

(I've started making the list, but I have to go do something else - I'll be back to finish the list and revise the list of allowed values in a few hours)

Posted by maxkirsch about 4 years ago (Flag)

I've removed all the values that corresponded to a taxon already reportable on iNaturalist.
It turns out that the maximum comment length is 5000 characters, which the full list well exceeds (it's over four times as long!). Would it be better if I maybe made the list a journal post or something and linked it in a comment for reference? Or are 5 long comments ok?

Posted by maxkirsch about 4 years ago (Flag)

Awesome. I think linking a journal post so it's copyable in one go is best. And it'll notify your followers that the new field exists. :)

Posted by bouteloua about 4 years ago (Flag)

I just added subfamilies to Furnariidae, so I removed woodcreeper sp. to the list of unused slashes and spuhs since it was no longer needed (unidentifiable woodcreepers can be reported as Dendrocolaptinae)

Posted by maxkirsch about 4 years ago (Flag)

Would it be possible to add Yellow-shafted Flicker and Red-shafted Flicker to the list. Thanks

Posted by rjq almost 4 years ago (Flag)

The list currently doesn't include any of the Clements checklist's polytypic subspecies groups; I think I'll make a separate observation field for them to make this one a little less cluttered, if that's ok.

(It would probably be ideal if these subspecies groups could eventually be integrated into iNat as actual iNat taxa [with the relevant subspecies included within them] rather than just as part of an observation field, especially since they're included in Clements [and not just the eBird version], which iNat follows. A couple more examples in addition to those you mentioned in the Google group are:
Junco hyemalis hyemalis [currently being used for any Slate-colored Junco];
J. h. oreganus [currently being used for any Oregon Junco];
Setophaga petechia erithachorides [currently being used for any Mangrove Warbler];
S. p. petechia [currently being used for any Golden Warbler];
Passerella iliaca iliaca [currently being used for any Red Fox Sparrow];
P. i. schistacea [currently being used for any Slate-colored Fox Sparrow];
P. i. unalaschcensis [currently being used for any Sooty Fox Sparrow]; and
P. i. megarhyncha and P. i. stephensi [both of which have the common name Thick-billed Fox Sparrow, and the former especially seems to be used for any Thick-billed Fox Sparrow].
It seems like it would be a shame if these ended up being swapped up to species level, losing thousands of associated narrower identifications, but at the same time, the current assignment to subspecies is inaccurate - being able to swap them to Clements's J. h. hyemalis/carolinensis, J. h. [oreganus Group], etc. would preserve the IDs with their original intent, plus it would save someone the effort of going through thousands of observations and manually adding the observation field to each one.)

For now, I've created a new observation field: Holding bin (bird subspecies groups).
