Thanks, Blair, for posting about seeing the Snoho Gyr yesterday, probably as well as on eBird, as I was told there were 3 sightings of this same (?) bird near Snohomish this past week, posted only on eBird. As eBird isn't something I am likely to register any birds on (it's all I can manage to do my Tweeters searches and posts), I certainly appreciate when some of you eBirders do a little post about your finds, especially if you are aware that there has been some discussion of your bird(s) on Tweeters.
Anyone else notice that the tone and topics on Tweeters has been changing, now that eBird draws off a bunch of Tweets who are primarily interested in listing? No complaints from this Tweet - just something I've noticed maybe in the past year or so. Interesting how it goes...
Question: Can one just 'lurk' on eBird, but not post sightings? Seems that, previously, when I looked into eBird, I would have to participate by registering and reporting and it would have difficulty 'just looking' as folks do on Tweeters. Any suggestions are welcome.

So, an RFI re: the Snoho Gyr - if any of you saw it today (Thur.) or see it this next week or 2, some of us would welcome news thereof on Tweeters, even if you report it on eBird.

A chorus of thanks to all you Tweets :-)
