Hi East End, please note that you have created a local mission & you should only be adding spottings within the 300 mile range. To avoid confusion, please could you describe the range on the mission overview page & add some clarification to the title - for instance Shades of Brown in New England, or something along those lines. Thank you!

Thank you khan-der for both the compliment and the suggestion! Good idea, I think I'll call it shades of brown :-)

Many thanks Karen!

Very cute!
You might also like to add this to the Project Squirrel mission, which you can find in the Global missions.
I believe the Chipmunk mission is a local one & will only come up in a search if you are within the mission range.

I couldn't find it - I'll have to look again. Many thanks!
