A few months back some new hotspots were set up in Montgomery County by Mike Bowen and Mike Ostrowski in ebird. Two of these are local parks around Laytonsville and four cover the park land on and around the Seneca Creek Greenway Trail. A few of these areas have received some coverage in the past, and because of this, I was hoping that anyone who has submitted a checklist previously from any of the areas listed and pictured below please change the location of your checklist to the appropriate hotspot, or merge your personal location with the appropriate hotspot in ebird.
If you have birded these areas before, or are considering birding them in the future, I've made a quick map to help identify which hotspot is which, and made a rough sketch of trails/walkable area at the locations. Numbers on the map correspond with hotspots which are hyperlinked to the appropriate ebird hotspot page below.
If you are unsure how to merge your personal location to the appropriate hotspot in ebird; follow these steps:
1: At the top of the page click "my ebird"
2: On the right side of the page click "manage my locations"
3: Find the location you want to change/merge
4: To the far right of that location's name click "edit"
5: Click the bubble that says "merge"
6: Click on the hotspot you want to merge the location with on the map
7: Click the "merge" box
If you have any questions regarding these locations or merging hotspots feel free to contact me off-list.
