Are long river reaches suitable for HOT SPOTS?

Must be floated. Not pure wilderness, but with few vehicle access points. County line down the thalweg; but no paired checklists.

Mike, a useful way to think about Hotspots is as 'shared locations' i.e. if you think this remote area should be birded more by others, then it could make a good hotspot. (on the other hand, if you didn't want others to bird this location, then you would keep it as a personal location, as you would do for your backyard for example)
eBird does suggest that birding checklists cover less than 5 miles, with consistent habitat, in case that factors in to your situation.
In any case, when you suggest it as a Hotspot, it will be up to the Hotspot reviewer to make the final decision.
hope this helps!
