New eBird Hotspots
Hemlock Creek Trail, Independence
Thanks to Ken Andrews for suggesting this hotspot and providing photos and a description.
Marion Tallgrass Trail–Marseilles Road to Hardin County Line
Thanks to Ron Sempier for suggesting this hotspot which adds the last leg of the Marion Tallgrass Trail.
Mosquito Creek Wildlife Area–Hoagland-Blackstub Road
We have removed the word “Flats” from the name of this hotspot. There are sometimes mudflats visible, but the hotspot may be used for checklists at anytime of year.
Mosquito Creek Wildlife Area–Mahan-Denman Boat Launch
We adjusted the road name to “Mahan-Denman” — we had inadvertently reversed the two names.
Mosquito Lake–North End
This hotspot has been renamed and the marker has been moved out of the area of restricted access in the Mosquito Creek Wildlife Area. Boaters may not enter the area north of Mahan-Denman Road. The hotspot may be used to submit checklists of birds seen on the north end of the lake in the wildlife area or the state park.
