Nick, Bill and All,

   I thought the same thing when I saw this.  We're stuck inside on
weekends for the most part while you guys are out birding!  If it could
be kept to "rare or unusual" sightings that are best gotten out ASAP to
the masses we'd be glad to do it.  Just please don't use it to call in
the everyday reports as we wouldn't have time for that. Feel free to
call them in to us any time and we'll get them out right away.

Subject: [CT Birds] Phoning in birds

When birders would find a bird worth

chasing and could not reach any friends at computers to post to this

listserv, they would sometimes call a popular birding store and ask

them to post their sighting. The store owners have constant internet

access and are happy to post updates on rarities. Both sides benefit.

For the birding community, they receive almost instant updates on

rarities, and they have a publicly listed number to call when they

need to get a report out. For the shop owners, they have become a

center for local birding information which has probably given them

more business along the way.
