Submit Winter Sightings to AZFO Seasonal Reports
3/1/08

Dear Birders,

The Winter Season is now over, and the AZFO welcomes reports of all unusual sightings in Arizona between 1 December and 29 February that can be included in our first state-wide seasonal regional reports. Please submit reports by March 15 so that regional coordinators can compile their reports, which will be put together on the AZFO website. The data entry location is: http://azfo.org/reports.html.

To contribute you don't have to be a member of AZFO. The goal of the seasonal reports is to gather useful data of good quality about bird distribution of new, unusual, or otherwise noteworthy bird observations from all regions of Arizona. We are looking for well-documented reports of individual species and their nesting activity, early and late arrivals, irruptions, unusually high or low concentrations, and birds found in unexpected habitats or areas of the state. Among the submissions will be those of unusual sightings that North American Birds doesn't have the space to provide coverage or details to in its seasonal reports.

There have been reports of noteworthy sightings the past three months on this listserv and the Christmas Bird Counts, including, among others, Common Grackle, Wilson's Warbler, Crescent-chested Warbler, Brown Thrasher, Cackling Goose, Eurasian Wigeon, Tundra and Trumpeter Swans that would be appropriate and useful submissions to the AZFO seasonal reports database. Posting unusual sightings on the Arizona/New Mexico listserv doesn't mean that they will automatically be submitted to the AZFO database or be included in the seasonal reports. We need your help in entering these great reports.

And we'll be looking forward to seeing your submissions for the Spring Season, which includes reports from today through May 31.


Good birding,

Doug Jenness,
Statewide Coordinator, AZFO Seasonal Reports

Note that this supplements or paralells the familiar efforts of the Arizona section of "North American Birds" and the Arizona Bird Committee but doesn't replace them or put your sigthings thru to NAB or document them for the ABC and vice versa.

(I'm involved with all three processes. Thanks to everyone who contributes!)
