Hi Folks:

Today, Officially I am resigning from both Tweeters and e-bird! In the
past, I have reported birds, and on at least two occasions, they have been
rejected by a group of individuals who have neither the courage or
Intellectual honesty to pursue the truth. I reported a Cassin's Auklet in
the spring seen from the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal, but it was never
accepted by the "powers that be" in e-bird. I again reported it when those
same "POWERS" asked for a Spring report for "American Birds." It did not
appear there either. I am not an expert as these folks purport to be, but I
am not given to given to false reporting. I make mistakes; anyone who birds
makes mistakes. But when I do report a bird, there is a very reasonable
certainty that I am correct. I have been birding for forty years and have
never lied to anyone, and am bewildered that no one ever even bother to call
or e-mail to question me about my sighting. If e-bird is going to be worth
anything to anybody, the reviewers at least ought to have the decency to
question reporters to verify the legitimacy of the bird.
