As you read these words, you will probably be noticing that everything on the eBird homepage looks shiny and new! We're delighted to share our new redesigned home for eBird. These new pages are the first step toward a full eBird redesign that will unify the look and feel of eBird, and will also make it much easier to use on mobile devices.

Have you ever noticed the 'County' tab or the 'Total County Ticks' summary of your lists in your My eBird summary and wondered why it was always full of zeroes for Australia?
