Thank you for bring this up.  I have been on Tweeters since 2001 when we moved to Sequim from Atlanta.  I have the sense that over that time, I have seen fewer rare birds noted on Tweeters and personally, I have been a little slow getting up to speed on eBird.  As a result, I've missed some rarities.  So, ya'll,  please post on both.  Oh well, off to see the Inca Tern on Hawaii next week (hopefully, it sticks around).Cheers,Sherry AndersonSequim and Port AngelesSent from my Galaxy Tab A

My house borders Fort Worden State Park, but I didn't know about the kittiwake until your posting, and now many others have seen it as well.

I looked on eBird and discovered that a number of people had seen the bird earlier in March, but apparently didn’t post it on tweeters. That sparked a thought.Please remember that posting a rarity or sem-rarity, in other words a bird that others would very much like to see, on eBird doesn’t mean that you’re sharing it with your local birding community. Lots of people aren’t on eBird.Thanks.Dennis PaulsonSeattle_______________________________________________Tweeters mailing listTweeters at u.washington.eduhttp://mailman11.u.washington.edu/mailman/listinfo/tweeters_______________________________________________Tweeters mailing listTweeters at u.washington.eduhttp://mailman11.u.washington.edu/mailman/listinfo/tweeters
