Re: Maps of birding locations

Here is another Google map of birding sites in the Bay Area, including several in the East Bay, created by members of the San Francisco Bay Area Birders group on Flickr (photo sharing website):

http://tinyurl.com/yo5oqf

It is far from complete, but it's a good start. You don't have to be a member of the Flickr group to edit the map and add a site. To add a placemark, click Edit at the top of the list of placemarks on the left, then click the blue balloon in the upper left corner of the map, drag it to your location and add text, click OK when done, then click Done at the top of the list.

It would be great if the various Bay Area birding maps on Google could be consolidated so there was a single resource birders could use to help them locate birding sites mentioned on the various email lists.

Worked fine for me. Peet¹s pond ­ Harbor Bay area of Alameda. Others
worked well. I have a similar map that someone in GGA put together. They
mapped the area with all the sites on one. Not really sure how they did it,
but here is that link:

Verne, your approach may work better ­ since our sites are farther flung.
So how does one create a locator like that?

Here is a possibility for creating an archive of birding locations. I'm
not sure how useful it would be (or if it actually works) so the
following are some maps I created in Google Maps with HTML links to
them. Click on the link in an HTML-enabled email and you should see the
map in a new web page.
Google Maps supports many different views (e.g. terrain and street) as
well as allowing you to get directions to the location.
Let me know if it works and I can add to the list and repost it from
time to time.
Hopefully, also, you can save the list on your computer as a reference.
When reporting a sighting, you could copy the map link into your report.
If you are savy with Google Maps, you could also create your own map in
My Maps with a pin location on it and publish that link in your report.
If our EBB group allowed for Archives, the maps could be listed there
instead.
