Hi all,

Friday marked the end of the winter bird reporting season. It is that
time for me to request winter bird reports (November-February). Ryan
Merrill (FieldNotes at wos.org) compiles records for WOS Field Notes and I
keep tabs of unusual bird sightings for North American Birds. To be
clear, an "Unusual Sighting" could be any of the following:

1) rare species (either a state rarity or a bird rare in a particular
locality, e.g. Black Scoter at Lake Wenatchee)
2) early or late dates for migrants
3) high-number counts for any species

To keep reporting as simple as possible, you can send reports via e-mail
to either Ryan or me, since we routinely share the reports. Please
include the species seen, number recorded, place recorded, and any other
interesting information. We will make sure the reports end up in the
right venue. Please send reports by March 15.

We obviously monitor Tweeters, and we are able to monitor sightings from
folks using eBird. The hope here is to snare a few reports, including
end dates of sightings, etc., that might not show through these outlets.

Thanks and good spring birding.
