A new hotspot has been created to accommodate the many checklists being sent in
by people going to see the Black-bellied Whistling Ducks found two days ago in
Sevier County. I have made this a stakeout hotspot. It is called stakeout
Black-bellied Whistling Duck (2016). Please use the hotspot when entering a
checklist from this location whether or not you actually find the ducks. The
great advantage to having
hotspots is to allow easy exploration of the data for the site. You will still
be able to look at bar charts,
etc. showing just your own observations there but you (and others) will also be
able to see the larger picture.
If you have already entered a checklist at the location and wish to have it
included in the hotspot, simply open your checklist and click on "Edit
Location" at the top right. Then choose Nearby Location to locate the hotspot
which will show on the map as a large red radio button. Click on the red
button and the name will pop up. click on Continue once you have found the
right hotspot and the location of your checklist will be changed to the hotspot.
Thank you for your cooperation and good birding! I hope lots of you get to see
these rare visitors.
