Subject: Re: [MDBirding] Varied Thrush eBird hotspot and the rules
Corrigendum:

Since the new hotspot doesn't contain the address which is the locus of sightings, please use the text below. Sorry for the confusion!

Access guidelines:
The bird was seen in the woods on the left (north) side of 22070 Philip Drive in greater Leonardtown MD. The homeowners are extremely welcoming. Birders may visit between 8am and 4pm. Visitors may walk on the driveway but please stay on the asphalt, do not go onto the deck, and do not wander around the yard. Please park along the left side of the road between the first house on Philip and this house (both houses are on the left side). If that space is full, please try to avoid parking directly in front of another house.

As with the Cape St. Claire Calliope Hummingbird, if you are submitting a checklist using the eBird hotspot, please add the rules (see below) to your checklist. Personally, I've been adding them in both the comments section for date and effort as well as with the species. If you have not added them, those checklists will be invalidated until the bird is gone or the rules change. Doubtful that the rules for the VATH or CAHU will relax so please respect the homeowner's wishes for both.

And, if you submitted a VATH checklist, the hotspot is now live and the eBird reviewers would kindly request that you merge your personal location onto the hotspot. Saves us a lot of work down the line when we try and consolidate the data. The new location name is:

stakeout Varied Thrush, Leonardtown (2018)

Thanks!
