About Notable Bird Sightings
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.

About Restricted Access
As a general rule, eBird hotspots are located at places with public access and birders are welcome to enter the location to view birds. There are, however, some exceptions.
