Thanks to everyone for your patience during eBird maintenance of the Home and About pages this past week.  A server at the Cornell Lab that contains the eBird home and about pages was hacked last week. The eBird database, data entry, explore data and My eBird pages were not affected. The eBird databases can be accessed only by a tightly controlled short list of internal computers that are used to ingest, compute, analyze, and serve eBird data. We spent the last week taking several additional security precautions for our Content Management System. The site is back up and working normally and we apologize for any inconvenience this past week.
