Define a filter for the eBird Basic Dataset (EBD) based on a range of start times for the checklist. This function only defines the filter and, once all filters have been defined, auk_filter() should be used to call AWK and perform the filtering.

auk_time(x, start_time)

Arguments

x

auk_ebd or auk_sampling object; reference to file created by auk_ebd() or auk_sampling().

start_time

character; 2 element character vector giving the range of times in 24 hour format, e.g. "06:30" or "16:22".

Value

An auk_ebd object.

Details

This function can also work with on an auk_sampling object if the user only wishes to filter the sampling event data.
