Vincent and others that like to do research on previous sightings,

I'm not sure if you are very familiar with ebird but it has great
information on sightings. I use it all the time for research.

At first the site can feel a little awkward but after time you get used to

For your particular query if you do the following you should find what you
are looking for:

Go to ebird.org

Click on Explore Data tab

Click Bar Charts (best to find individual sighting I think)

Selection Washington in the state list

Click on counties in Washington in the subregion area

Click the continue button at the bottom

Select Clallam on the next screen and click the continue button

Now you will see a screen of all species seen in that county since 1900

You will need to change the date range by clicking the date rang button

In this case you could just choose 2011 to 2013 to give you the last winter
to this winter

Click the continue and you are back to the list of birds for this date range

Scroll down to the species Northern Mockingbird and click MAP button

This gives you a map that you can zoom in on a click on specific sightings

In PA you can see Ryan Merrill saw this bird on 1/23/12

Click on his checklist and you see his note and picture he took.

You can use other filters for searches here too.

For sightings in the last 14 days someone build a better interface for the
ebird data and that can be found at


Happy researching,

What's up with the Tweeters archives? I've tried many a search on there with
no success. As an example, I'm trying to find out more about the Northern
Mockingbird and Rock Wren that were seen a year ago in Port Angeles, Clallam
Co. I've tried searching the term "mockingbird" and "wren" as well as
"Northern Mockingbird" and "Rock Wren" and I get no hits. Can anyone explain
this and perhaps tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.
