Cornell eBirder update

From the Cornell eBirder site"
"With the launch of the new rich media upload tool last month, we have entered a new era of natural history documentation at eBird. More than 125,000 rich media files have been submitted over the past several weeks thanks to the contributions of eBirders worldwide. This collection provides an amazing repository of natural history information, where each piece of media is linked to an eBird checklist; complete with location information, date and time, and often the other birds using that location at the same time. On the eBird side, these photos and recordings provide documentation for the eBird observation—creating an objectively verifiable record that can serve as a “digital specimen” for each of these sightings."
