[Tweeters] Discovery Park birding map

Hi tweets,

A few years back, David Hutchinson shared a really useful gazetteer for
Discovery Park (found here: https://tinyurl.com/yder2c9e). To help folks
get around the park and find the most interesting birding spots, I made an
updated annotated map with the common place names used by the core of
birders who frequent the park. In making this, I was reminded just how
many different locales there are worth visiting (though some of the labels
are for reference more than as birding destinations).

Fall is an amazing time at Discovery, with great diversity and numbers of
landbirds and waterbirds passing through. In October, I favor West Point
for waterbirds migrating over the Sound, and the open areas from Utah
wetland to the south meadow. But really, any part of the park can be birdy
in almost any season.

The new map is here: https://tinyurl.com/y8dv2axr. I hope folks find it
useful, and that it inspires some of you to get out and bird Discovery!

Good birding,
Matt Dufort
