I've worked with the list-owner to fix the online voting problems.  The poll should now work for all members. Now please let's get back to sharing sightings!

Thanks.


An existing poll has been modified, check it out. All votes have been reset.

After some improvements in Yahoo's performance, there again have been recent complaints about slow deliveries. Yahoo offers no support to groups such as ours. Changing mail list hosts is not simple.

Heather Farm Park, 9/17/18

Heather Farm Park, and its natural pond this migration season, has been quite productive, as you've no doubt gathered from recent postings. This morning, I was joined by four fellow birders--Bob Dunn, Hugh Harvey, Fred Safier, and Walt Duncan--on the south side of the pond, and with our feet fixed to the path for about half an hour, we were dazzled by the activity, and diversity, in one oak tree.   


Townsend's Warbler

Yellow-rumped Warbler (arriving in numbers, now)

Black-throated Gray Warbler  

Orange-crowned Warbler

Yellow Warbler

Bush Tit

Hutton's Vireo

Western Wood Pewee

Oak Titmouse

Black Phoebe

Chestnut-backed Chackadee

House Finch

Anna's Hummingbird

Pacific Slope Flycathcher

Willow Flychatcher

Nuttall's Woodpecker

Downy Woodpecker

Lark Sparrow

White-breasted Nuthatch


Good birding, all,

Hi EBB-ers,
Looks like the only way to participate in a Yahoo poll is through the website.
If you'd like to participate, please log-in and vote.
The results of the previous poll (78 responses) were:
Everything's fine: 19
The glitches are OK: 12
Move on: 29
More information needed: 24
Then, things seemed to get better. Plus, we did some stuff on the server side.
Let us know.
I went to the website. I couldn't participate 'cuz I'm not a moderator. Nonetheless, I do NOT want to move. Yahoo is crazy, but mobilize.io is not an improvement.

I'm OK with staying with yahoo

My vote is to stay put


RE poll inbox deluge

judisierra
 

Please send your results to EBB webmaster diabloaudubonwebmaster@gmail.com. There are probably others besides myself that don't appreciate the inbox deluge and would prefer not to wade through to read sightings.

For what it's worth there were 3 delayed sighting e-mail postings within the last couple of weeks at the height of fall migration. Mine I know for sure was delayed by 2 days. Which in my mind is not acceptable but io groups has seperate issues.

I  vote for number one but the link to the poll doesn’t work. It says I have to be a moderator.

I didn't get this until 22 hours after it was posted. Then had to be an administrator to record my vote. I voted this am after receiving others emails with their votes. I think this illustrates the problem.

I vote for 3.  I think this listserve is way past its prime. The confusion regarding this last poll is evidence.
Thanks,
Jerry Britten


Re: New poll for EBB_Sightings

Glen Tepke
 

I vote for #3.  Why?  Because I received several replies to the message about the poll before I received the message itself, then received four copies of the message, then couldn't vote because "Oops!  You need to be a moderator to perform this action."  Three more examples of what a mess Yahoo Groups is.  I belong to several other groups that use Groups.io and they seem to work well.  It's time to move on.  Thanks.

I vote for No. 1. No problem with messages, but I had a terrible time trying to login to vote.

Friends!
The poll link goes to the Yahoo website but won’t let me vote there, so I vote here to continue with Yahoo Groups as is.
Likewise - the way it's set up, you have to have moderator status to vote. But despite the example of Yahoo-ery, I like the list here. I'm on one with .io and I hate it.

I would vote for IO or #3. Many other group are moving to that.

I vote #3. I think groups.io is definitely better.
