> Hi John,
> Thank you so much for this! Jerry Jourdan in Detroit Picked it up from there and spread it further – on his Facebook and something else that I can’t recall now, perhaps an email list.
> Just wanted to touch base about professor bird: I haven’t written back yet – yesterday was crazy and I went to do it today and I have no Internet. I’m using my phone to email you right now so I might just sit here and type it up and comfortably on my phone. Just wanted you to know I haven’t forgotten about it and will cc you. Thanks so much!

>>> HMANA’s Mission
>>> Since 1974 HMANA has promoted and studied migratory patterns and behaviour of diurnal birds of prey. HMANA has set the standard for recording species data; www.HawkCount.org, a robust raptor monitoring database, and partnered in analyzing count data to interpret raptor population treads with the Raptor Population Index (RPI). Now our network of over 200 hawkwatches across North America is more timely than ever before as field birders, research scientists, banders and the hawkwatching public face serious challenges to our work from urbanization, climate and migratory changes and lack of nature awareness. Please visit www.hmana.org to learn more about our work, and we hope you will join us in Detroit in October.
