This posting has been approved by the Ontbirds coordinator.

The winter reporting season for North American Birds (NAB) is now over. 
This is a plea / request for observers to submit their interesting
sightings to local compilers.

North American Birds is published four times a year by the American
Birding Association and contains seasonal sightings / summaries for all
regions of North America.  The Ontario section consists of a very
detailed account, which presents a summary of sightings from across the
entire province.  Numerous photos of various rarities are also included. 
Ontario seasonal reports have been published since 1947, and contain a
wealth of historical information on the birdlife of the province.

More information about North American Birds can be found here:


Below is a list of all current, local compilers for Ontario.  Please take
the time to submit your significant sightings to these local compilers,
for each area you may have visited this past winter during the period of
December 1 to February 29 inclusive.  Likely this will take less than 15
minutes of your time.

Short-term your sightings will be compiled for NAB, longer-term they will
be used for additional purposes such as regional checklists or regional
publications (examples of such include those recently published for
Niagara and Hamilton).
