|Birders are encouraged
to submit their observations to the appropriate regional
editor for inclusion in The
Kingbird. At the most basic level, a report is a
written notation of a bird species along with
the date, place, and number observed.
Reports with the greatest level of detail you are willing to
provide and with your comments on the circumstances and the
season in the areas you visited will be of the most interest
and use. Counts and careful numerical estimates at specific
sites are preferred. However, even the simple presence or absence
of a species in an area on a date indicated by a check on a
list may have some utility. Submission on checklists of some
kind, or at least summarized in checklist order, will ease
the task of the regional editor in assembling and trying to
make sense out of a season's input. In the end, any form of
written submission will be appreciated.
