Subject: [LABIRD-L] eBird abundance maps
For those stuck at home and jonesing for birds, I highly recommend taking a look at eBird's animated abundance maps.

They can be pretty amazing. It almost looks like in the Black-throated Green Warbler (and others) map one can see the famous "coastal hiatus" conjectured by George Lowery and other early migration observers-the tendency of many tans-gulf migrants to fly well inland in Spring before landing, except in those rare cases they were forced to land on the coast.

Or you can see how habitat constrains where other migrants can be found with N. Waterthrush

Way cool. You can get lost for hours.
