eBird outage

Have been unable to reach eBird for the last five or six hours. Browser error message:

"Can’t connect securely to this page. This might be because the site uses outdated or unsafe TLS security settings. If this keeps happening, try contacting the website’s owner."

No problem reaching other sites.

Elsewhere on birdforum I saw that this outage had been noticed by Cornell and they were working on it (message given wia twitter). Additionally, that it later did come back online.

This morning I received a reply from eBird support in response to an email inquiry I had sent. Major power outage in Ithaca yesterday caused the disruption.

It did motivate me to download my lifelist & major regions lists. Hate to have all my eggs in one basket.

My second option is also local: scythebill software https://www.scythebill.com/download.html

Niels: Thanks for the heads-up! Looks like a great Plan B that could just as easily become Plan A!

I finally got around to downloading & installing Scythebill, and then imported by eBird life list. Sure beats trying to update my Excel spreadsheets to reflect taxonomic revisions! Thanks for the heads-up.
