North American Birds Reminder


Dear North American Birds Contributors,

Apologies to those of you belonging to multiple list-serves who are getting
this message four or five times!

Please send your noteworthy records from the Middle Pacific Coast Region for
the period 1 June 2000 – 31 July 2000 to the appropriate Subregional Editors
(see below) or to the Regional Editors by 10 August. Please note that Peter
Metropolus has agreed to serve as the Subregional Editor for Mono County.

PLEASE use Subregional Editors for the counties that have them. These SREs
painstakingly keep track of records within their counties and are in most
cases THE source of information on the birds of their counties. By sending
your records to the SREs, you are helping to contribute to their county files
as well as to North American Birds. If you wish to send copies to the
Regional Editors, we welcome them, but please send records through the SREs as
well. If you have a noteworthy summer sighting from a county without a
Subregional Editor, please send records to the Regional Editors below.

PLEASE meet your deadlines so that we can meet our deadlines!

Please send reports in our preferred order: species, date(s) [including year],
locale, co. abbrev., number of birds, and observer, and then, on a second
line, any comments. Please separate these sections by a "tab" (except just a
space between locale and county abbreviation) on electronic versions
submitted. Again, here's an example of the correct format:

Grace's Warbler 12/13/98-2/20/99 Jacks Peak MTY 1 adult RFT, mob
A second record for the Region (the first was 6/26/91 at Deer Spring, Glass
Mt. MNO) which wintered with a large flock of Townsend's & Hermit warblers at
the very top of Jacks Peak in Jacks Peak Regional Park. Details by Tintle and
others are enclosed.

Many observers and Subregional Editors have been submitting their reports
electronically, either on a diskette or by e-mail. PLEASE submit electronic
reports if possible. We are trying to maintain an electronic database of at
least recent records, and we hope to be able to have all old data entered
eventually so that the entire database will be easily accessible to anyone who
wants it. Electronic submission of records in the format described above
makes it much easier for us maintain this electronic database.

We’ve heard questions about, comments on, and criticism of our regional
reports from several observers and SREs. We really appreciate this feedback,
as it helps us to better represent what is going on in the Region as a whole.
Please help us correct any factual errors we make, and don’t hesitate to let
us know what you think of the reports.

Many thanks to all the contributors and Subregional Editors who make these
reports possible!
