Make-over to The Bird Guide's Pelagic Site

Screen Shot
It has been 7 years since the last major overhaul of our website.

Since then computer monitors have become shorter and wider. So the 4:3 aspect ratio no longer looked up-to-date. Websites on the new wide-screen (16:9) aspect ratio of most recent monitors looks better with multiple columns.

And I added many more photos to the opening page, showing seabirds and birders enjoying seabirds. It now looks more modern and less spartan--though I am a big fan of clean-looking pages.

I've simplified the pages into a 3-step format: Choose Your Pelagic Trip, Reserve Your Space, and Prepare for Your Trip. It should now be easier to find helpful information, including a new combined Annotated Checklist with Semimonthly Abundance Bar Chart and Recent Sightings Archive--all on one page now instead of three.

Anyway, take a look and see what you think. And if you find any problems, broken links, browser issues, or other things that don't make sense, please let me know so I can fix them. Thanks.
