> Subject: [Maine-birds] Eastern Rd., Scarborough today: FOY Snowy Egret & Savannah Sparrows
> Today there were a SNOWY EGRET, 3 SAVANNAH SPARROWS, a pair of Gadwall and at least 25 Northern Pintails seen by myself and Jeff Webb along Eastern Road in Scarborough, all FOY's. Since I had my camera with me and took some photos I thought I'd attempt the eBird experience again. Here is the list, hopefully with the Snowy included:

> I've had mega frustrations with eBird in the past, as usually when I felt inspired to start using the site regularly and in earnest, it was because of seeing something I wanted to report that they deemed too out of the ordinary to take my word on (for example a spring migratory fallout of 8 Blackpoll Warblers one morning at Essex St. Woods in Bangor). Never extreme rarities, but eBird's gatekeepers always sternly wanted DETAILS beyond what I was able to provide, and though Louis Bevier was extremely helpful in trying to get me set up, I gave up after a couple of futile attempts.
> eBird is a worthy site whose bar charts I find especially helpful, and I understand why they're picky about unusual sightings, hopefully the photos help this time!
