Thanks to @Team_eBird for their dedication keeping eBird.org running
smoothly and for the group of New York State hotspot moderators for working
on shared location suggestions.

** See notes below if you wish to merge any of your personal locations with
existing hotspots/

New and renamed shared locations (hotspots) have been updated for the 62
county wiki pages. You can find a summary of the changes below with
clickable links where pages exist for a dedicated hotspot.

• http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/NewHotspotshttp://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/RenamedHotspots

The above links now appear on the home page (see below) on the '*Shared
Location Updates*' line eliminating the need to refer back to this message:

Home page:
• http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+New+York

The alphabetized page with all hotspots (6,017) has also been updated.

Alphabetical list of hotspots:

If you wish to merge your personal location with an existing hotspot here
are the steps:

— Sign into eBird.org
— Go to "My eBird" & select "Manage My Locations" in the right panel
— At the bottom of the screen click "Show All" to see all locations on one
page
— You can sort the list by clicking on any of the headers: Location,
Country, State/Province, County, Type* or # of Checklists
— Select your personal location (it will show a letter "P" under Type*) by
clicking "Edit" on the right side of the line
— Select the "Merge" button and you'll see all nearby hotspots as red icons
— Keep the checkmark for "Delete after merging" selected
— Click the icon that best fits your location
— ... now you'll see the hotspot description above the 'Merge' button along
with the # of checklists you'll be merging
— Click on the 'Merge' button
— Answer Yes to the 'Yes or No' query

All checklists for that personal location will be combined with the hotspot
with this process.
