List of Editors Region Map Report Due Dates

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.
