AZFO Seasonal Reports Project
From Doug Jenness:

Dec. 4, 2007

Dear AZ Birders and Biologists,

Arizona Field Ornithologists (AZFO) is launching the Seasonal Bird Reports project, which will hopefully involve many active birders, biologists, and researchers across the state. By providing us with your seasonal reports of noteworthy bird observations we will begin laying the framework to better understand the dynamic nature of seasonal bird status and distribution in all regions of Arizona. This exciting effort will begin with the Winter 2007-08 season, which started on 1 December. We invite you and others to participate in this very worthwhile endeavor.

For more information on this project and how to participate please go to the seasonal reports page on the AZFO website at: http://azfo.org/reports.html. For those who are wondering, AZFO seasonal bird reports will complement and expand the fine reporting efforts of the Arizona Bird Committee and North American Birds. It is not replacing these long-time stalwarts of data collection.
Noteworthy observations can be submitted throughout the season for any AZ region at http://azfo.org/ASPreports/speciesToday_list.aspx. A map of the state’s reporting regions can be found at http://azfo.org/regions/regions.html. There are coordinators for each region and at the end of each season, they will review the sightings submitted from their region and prepare a regional seasonal report. Each report will be published on the AZFO website together with a statewide summary approximately one month after each season.

The updated list of regional coordinators is:

Mohave - Tracy McCarthey,
Navajo and Hopi - Chuck LaRue,
White Mountains - Eric Hough,
Yavapai - Troy Corman,
South Central - Janet Witzeman,
Gila - Jeff Estis,
Southwest - Henry Detwiler,
Southeast - Mark Stevenson, and Michael Marsden

If you have questions about reporting contact them. Please note the list of coordinators on our seasonal reports web page is currently outdated and will be revised soon. We are without a regional coordinator for the Coconino region. If you or someone you know would like to assume this responsibility, please let me know. Meanwhile, Troy Corman has agreed to cover it.

We recognize that it will take a little extra effort to keep track of noteworthy sightings and submit them in a timely manner, but we are confident that many will be inspired by the unique contribution we can make with this project.

Good birding,

Doug Jenness
