What’s New–Current

New eBird Hotspots

Thanks to the many birders who submitted checklists in the Kirtland’s Warbler Migration Blitz research project. In Ohio, we had a little over 300 hotspots (KIWA-OH-survey) set up to accept checklists for the project. The research project is complete and a paper has been published with the results. The survey hotspots have been retired from eBird.
+ A little over half of the hotspots (160) had no checklists and have been deleted.
Survey hotspots with checklists
+ have been merged into an existing hotspot (112),
+ renamed to become a new hotspot (34), or
+ in just a few cases changed to a personal location shared by those who submitted checklists (6).
