What happened to the BirdTrax display of rare bird sightings?
If you were a fan of the BirdTrax display of notable bird sightings, you may be wondering what happened to it. eBird updated the application program interface (API) which meant the code for BirdTrax no longer works. The developer of BirdTrax did not have the time to continue development and support of the gadget. Instead, check these links.

the BirdFinder
BirdFinder is a gadget written by Ed Norton, a Massachusetts birder. BirdFinder, displayed at the bottom of the website home page, provides information about the county where the bird was seen, which birder submitted the checklist, whether or not the sighting has been confirmed, and links to the checklist, Google map, and eBird species map.
