Your home list lists all the species you have recorded from your home yard/garden. If you have added your home location to Birda (see below if you have not yet done this), then your home list is automatically created and updated every time you post a sighting or session from your home. Any records you imported to Birda that you saw at home will also be included in your home list.

Where to find your home list in the Birda app

You can find your Home List in the Birda app as follows:

  1. Open the Birda app and tap on 'Discover' in the bottom menu

  2. Then tap on 'Life Lists'

  3. And then scroll to the bottom of your life lists and tap on 'Home'

How to add your home location in Birda

To add your home location via the Birda app, either add your home location when you sign up or browse to Profile > Settings > Privacy Controls > Home Location to add or edit your home location. For more information on setting you home location, take a look at our article 'How to set your home location in Birda'

What radius is used for Home Lists

Birda uses a 40m radius around your home location to calculate if a sighting should be added to your Home List. Make sure that you drop your home location pin in the center of your property to make sure that all sightings at home are correctly added to your Home List.

What about my privacy

If you choose to add your home location in Birda, Birda will protect your privacy by hiding the location of any sightings that you post within a 400m radius around your home. Read more about Home Location Privacy here.
