Subject: [nysbirds-l] Top 10+ Locations Reviewed (NYS eBird Hotspots)
The county pages with the Top 10+ locations listed at the top of each page
have been reviewed for 42 out of 62 counties. There are changes in 7
counties. Twenty counties are pending a Top 10+ list. Please note that all
hotspots for NYS are accessible from the web pages. Those without a
dedicated hotspot wiki page are linked to eBird's 'Hotspot Explorer' page
centered on the hotspot. These locations are preceded with an asterisk (*).

The locations promoted to Top 10+ below are preceded with a plus (+) sign.
