Google Maps Reviews
Want to help spread the word about your favourite birding hotspot on the world's most viewed map? You've come to the right place!
Why use Google Maps?
Savvy birders use eBird to find hotspots, but the public and new birders often use Google Maps. By writing reviews, you're helping potential birders discover a location and pay attention to the birds that they may otherwise overlook.
