If this was a trip you were on, you can have an exact copy automatically added to your eBird account by clicking the Share link.  If you don't yet have an eBird account, clicking this link will prompt you to set one up and then will add it to your new account. PLEASE DO NOT CLICK THE Share LINK UNLESS YOU WERE ON THE TRIP (otherwise you'll be listed as an observer in eBird, which will cause problems with the data!). Van trips are too difficult to provide links because of the many stops, so if you would like that information shared, please email me at beckym@acadiabirdingfestival.com.
