Notable Bird Sightings

Birders who appreciated the BirdTrax display of notable sightings, there are two replacements in development.
Ohio Notable Bird Sightings developed by Ohio birder, Ken Andrews, displays on the bottom of the Birding in Ohio home page.
WhereDaBirds, which we are unable to display on a WordPress page right now, has more links similar to BirdTrax. There is a link to this website, also on the home page. WhereDaBirds is being developed by Ed Norton, a birder in New England.
