2 email addresses on one eBird account?

How can I add a 2nd email address to my eBird account? I created my account over a dozen years ago (while a grad student at Cornell!) using a hotmail account I don't use much anymore. Adding my gmail account, which I actually use, would make it much easier for me to have people share lists with me and vice versa. But I don't want to just "change" my email address, dropping my hotmail, because that's still how I'm associated with some orgs and people I shared lists with for years, and I still use it occasionally. Creating a second eBird account wouldn't keep my lists all in one place unless I migrated the hundreds of lists on my current account over to the new one, and/or continually shared back and forth between the two in perpetuity. Please tell me there's a way to have 2 email addresses on one eBird account, and how to do it. Thanks!

Interesting question. Great idea. we have 13 eBird accounts with several emails between them, so we appreciate your problem.

But this is not the best place to ask. eBird techies do not check this community forum.

Try the contacts to upper right this page or the one contact in the FAR!!! upper right corner for better responses.

Good birding,
