The ability to import individual cheklists from eBird in desktop
The current ability to import data from eBird into Bird Journal relies on the download of one's complete eBird data set. When birding with others who use the eBird app they share their list (obtained by concensus) with the party. These individual lists cannot be imported without a lot of reformatting to the point that it is easier to input these lists by hand.
PLEASE configure a way to add each checklist from eBird as they are created. It would make your program mush more popular!

I have 72 such list from a single trip to Costa Rica. That's a lot of keying. Now that eBird allows export of individual lists, surely Bird Journal could provide import.
I agree with the suggestion to add a start date or date range. If that can't be done, duplicate recognition is a must

Or add a start date (or date range) field to the import - then it could import from a complete dataset download, but only actually load entries for that date (or range), not the whole thing.
Or detect entries in a complete dataset download that have already been imported (using the eBird Submission ID field), and only import the new ones.
Great suggestion, thanks!
