“Input from the birding public is eagerly sought. If you have corrections or other information that would be valuable to include in any of the species accounts, please submit it, preferably labeled "BOSBC", to sbcobirding. But recent records from the current 'season' should be sent to county compiler Dave Compton (davcompton60 [at] We will consider these data for all future updates. This electronic publication can be modified easily, and the plans are to do so on a regular basis.[...] Feel free to comment privately to Paul as well, but we encourage suggested changes to be posted publicly on the sbcobirding site, so that we can all share in this potential new information.”
