      Hi all,

      Google Earth/Maps has become one of the greatest tools ever for scouting and finding birding locations. A recent report on birding Imperial County mentioned the location of a pond at the west end of McNerney Road. There is no west end of McNereney Road so little searching turned up a recent incorrect road name change in Google Earth so that there are now two McNerney Roads shown. McNerney Road is actually a north/south road that is 1/2 mile west of and parallels Lack Road west of Westmorland. At the north dead end of McNerney Road is the New River and Wiley Reservoir which is an important birding site and turns up some great birds at times. The road name that has been changed incorrectly is McKendry Road and that is important because McKendry is the east/west road that goes west from Gentry Road to one of the best birding locations there is...Obsidian Butte!! I placed a report to Google Earth but will a one mile dirt road in the middle of nowhere get a correction? So if you are doing a little research to look for all those great birds being reported on the Salton Sea at Obsidian Butte on McKendry Road.... try the other McNerney?

      See ya at the sea.......
