Dear eBirders, eBird has been down this morning (still true as of 10:40am EST) due to unexpected server issues on the Cornell University campus. There is no reason for alarm (all the data are very safe) but if you are having trouble submitting or accessing Explore Data or the Review Tools, this is a known issues that multiple teams at the Lab and University are working on.
Issues like this are incredibly rare and our team manages to keep eBird up and running something like 99.99% of the time. But as with all technology, issues sometimes arise and need to be fixed.
If you are using eBird Mobile, you can wait to submit your lists until eBird is back up again. Use "offline checklist" to grab your new location and start a checklist if you are lucky enough to be out in the field this morning: http://help.ebird.org/customer/en/portal/articles/ 1880550-using-ebird-mobile-offline
Thank you, Kent Vermont eBird manager
