    New eBird Maps!

    I hope Brian Sullivan will elaborate on this sometime soon, but eBird has recently rolled out a beta version of their new & improved global range & point maps.  I have been playing around with them some and think it is an amazing resource for birders- I hope it will steer even more people into using eBird.  The feature "…allows you to view global maps for any species or subspecies, refine the data to a specific season or date range, and then drill down to the individual sightings that make up the map."

      eBird rocks! I’ve really been enjoying this new map feature.

    Birders know well that the healthiest, most dynamic choruses contain many different voices. The birding community encompasses a wide variety of interests, talents, and convictions. All are welcome.
    If you like birding, we want to hear from you.

      It was a winter morning, the cloudy skies blocked out the brilliance of the sun. A chilly wind ran through the treetops like a group of mad, fast-moving invisible Capuchin monkeys. The branches of a nearby tree were shaking uncontrollably and the delicate stems could not support the weight of its leaves and blooming flowers. […]
