WOW - You have built a "birder's delight" page for those of us caught
in the cyberbirding web. What a super site - keep up the great work!!!
Barb Putnam, Gansevoort, New York, USA
Fantastic! Love the Virtual Tours. Keep up
the good work.
Kerry Asquith, Stow, Massachusetts, USA
Great! I just spent a pleasant two hours looking
here, there and everywhere. Lots of information
and lots of fun. Thanks for all your time and

Great fun. I love the songs.
J. Hall, Amarillo, Texas USA
I am a novice birder, actually I
have spent my summer researching
birds and am amazed and proud
that I can identify so many of the
birds just from the reading I have

The best yet. Certainly the most challenging.

Too fuzzy pictures.

You were probably using the low-band setting.
If you have a good network connection, try the mid-band or
hi-band settings. Click the 'Help' button while
on a trip to find out more.

'Down East Maine' Scoreboard
I love it! The format is great, as
are the locations picked. If you
ever decide to release this on
CDROM, let me know (as long
as its in Macintosh format, too).
In the FAQ, one of the questions
concerned the screens without
birds in them -- leave those in! It
gives it the feel of actually being
there rather than just looking at a
textbook. I have been to Acadia
NP several times and you don't
see a bird every step of the way,
half the fun of looking for the
birds is enjoying the scenery
where they live.
Cheryl Clark, San Antonio, Texas, USA
Like the Mt. Auburn Vbirder, this
was swell! Keep up the good
work. It will be fun to revisit these
sites in the 'off season'. thanks.
Andy Ferland, Holliston, Massachusetts, USA
Great fun - I picked up a bunch of
life birds. Hope to visit the real
Maine some day.
Judy Bass, Altadena, California, USA
best web site i've seen. the only
thing missing is the sound of
Ken Zaslow, Amherst, Massachusetts, USA
Liked your game a lot, learned the
birds we expect to see on our
upcoming trip to Maine. Good Birding!
Winskie, Chewelah, Washington, USA
Too many Puffins?
Jan Hoftun, Providence, Rhode Island, USA
Too many Puffins!? You can never have too many puffins (just kidding :) ) !
I agree from an identification point of view it's a bit
tedious to id each one. The inclusion of all the Puffins
was meant to give a depth to the experience and convey
what a trip to Machias Seal Island is like rather than
to challenge people's identification skills.
Good warm up for my trip to Cape
Breton Island next week.

This is what cyberspace should be for!

I didn't think it was possible but I
think this is BETTER than the first [Mount Auburn].

'Mount Auburn' Scoreboard
A good time! . . .
Unfortunately, there's no format to
actually I.D. the American Crow! Once
I got the knack of navigating, I had a
blast! I'd compare this to the great CD
ROM Adventures with the exception
that this was a lot more FUN! Thanks
for the bird walk.
Brian M. Collins, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Several people have pointed out that 'American Crow' is missing
from the list. This was intentional until I could
get a sound clip. Mount Auburn is one of the
best locations in Massachusetts to see/hear Fish Crows and so
there's no way to accurately identify the species without hearing
it first. I'll add the sound clip shortly and add 'American Crow'
and 'Fish Crow' to the list.
Would be nice to highlight places
already visited on map.
Eric Heineke, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
Unfortunately it's not possible to do this with static maps.
It would be possible with a Java app or by dynamically
generating the maps, neither of which will happen in
the short term. The best I can suggest is to print
out a copy of the map and keep track on there where you've
Great Fun! Wish I had more time...

Not bad for a 13 year old [7450 points]
Tim Porter, Winchester, Massachusetts, USA
I've spent many a fine and not so
fine morning @ this spectacular
birding site. I loved discovering this
site on the net almost as much as
discovering the many birds at The
Dell etc. I want more (call me a
hog). I'd love to see a neotropical
Paul "Pablo" Champlin, Sunderland, Massachusetts, USA
One of the best sites on the net.
Donald Hobern, Southampton, England
Had to quit before I found all the
birds, but it was a nice break. I
would like to see more of these.
Janet Holzworth, Columbus, Ohio, USA
Even if you've never bird watched in your life, this site is fun!

Hot Site: June 28-30, 1996
This is a very nice site ... I love the opening graphics... [it's a] clean site,
what I mean by that is the way the graphics are laid out... visually appealing ...
very easy to follow and navigate this site...
A very nicely done site ... even if you've never [birded] before...
