    Lynx joins with Cornell

    For info you can access the original HBW texts still if you subscribe to the new thing...hidden nicely under the "Revisions" section as shown in the first screenshot. Not ideal but at least they are somewhere. As for the species accounts...oh dear...the American-centric-ness really has to...

    Lynx joins with Cornell

    Not sure how much use a free access to BNA is to this non-US based birder...and one not likely to visit under the current political stewardship... More concerned how my migrated lists from HBW will look in eBird...data migration is always fun...wonder if they'll spot the booby traps I've laid...
