Report Your Bird Sightings

Fall is almost upon us  and with it comes great birding!  Our Summer species are starting to leave and many of our Winter species will be moving in ... and start looking for those transient fall migrants.

To report a bird sighting that is Accidental, Rare, Out-Of-Season (OOS), Uncommon, First-Of-The-Year (FOTY), First-Of-The-Season(FOTS) or a species that you consider to be a "Good Find" e-mail Jack Cocolough at BirdingFinds@yahoogroups.com or call 1-843-432-2661. Please state your full name, the bird species sighted, date and location of your sighting and other pertinent information.

You can also download an app on your computer or smartphone - Ebird (www.ebird.org) where you can input your sightings immediately! eBird is the world’s largest biodiversity-related citizen science project, with more than 100 million bird sightings contributed each year by eBirders around the world. A collaborative enterprise with hundreds of partner organizations, thousands of regional experts, and hundreds of thousands of users, eBird is managed by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.This app will help you track birds in the area and help you find that bird for your list.

Keep up the good work of reporting your bird finds on Birding Friends.
