How do I use the mapping tool to plot a new location?

eBird incorporates the familiar Google Maps interface for plotting locations.  Users can use the "Where did you bird" fields to first fill in county (US only) and state if known, and then select a country to restrict the initial extent of the map.  Tip: if you have trouble, just try entering a state and then use the tools at left to zoom in to your place of interest. Once the map is zoomed in to the nearest possible extent you can click on it to plot your location, or choose an existing location by clicking either the orange (hotspots) or blue (personal locations) markers.
