Why is there no photograph of ... ?

We will be adding more photographs as time goes on. As a new site, we are still in the process of collecting and scanning images. We are always interested in image submissions, and would love to see yours.

Why is the site so slow ?

Because the site is database driven, each step in the process does require time for the database to search for the result of your selection. We have tried to streamline the process as much as possible. We have also optimized the graphics for use on the web to reduce download time.

When will the site be complete?

Hopefully never! A site like this is a constantly evolving entity. We are always looking for suggestions on new features that you would like to see implemented. Since April 1, 2000, we have added more than 400 photographs as well as implementing the sightings database and discussion forums.

Why do some of the real audio files not work?

If you are having problems working with the real audio files, you may need to upgrade your version of Real Player to the most current. Simply click on the help menu in Real Player and select "Check for Update". It will connect to Real Networks servers and download the most current version of the program for your system.
