North American Bird Watching Google Maps Mashup

GeoBirds.com + Google Maps - The folks at GeoBirds.com have created an amazing Google Maps mashup that makes use of Flash and Google Maps to show you a fascinating bird map of the US and Canada. They have mashed together bird range data from the US Geological Service's annual breeding bird survey and the Audubon Society's annual Christmas bird count to bring North American birders a suite of map-based tools including:

1. An identification tool that narrows likely birds by proximity to your location
2. Interactive and explorable range maps
3. An identification game allowing birders to practice identifying birds
from their area
4. Functionality for posting and viewing your own bird sightings
