      Hi all,
      Apologies as usual to those getting this message on multiple listserves.

      Dear North American Birds Contributors,

      The fall season has already come to a close so please send your noteworthy
      records from the Middle Pacific Coast Region for the period 1 August-30 November
      to the appropriate Subregional Editors (see below) or to the Regional Editors
      by 10 December.

      Please pay special attention to the format example given at the end of this
      message. Reports that are formatted properly make our job far easier. In
      particular, it is important to note that there is a single tab between species,
      date, etc.

      PLEASE use Subregional Editors for the counties that have them. These SREs
      painstakingly keep track of records within their counties and are in most cases
      THE source of information on the birds of their counties. By sending your
      records to the SREs, you are helping to contribute to their county files as well
      as to North American Birds. If you wish to send copies to the Regional
      Editors, we welcome them, but please send records through the SREs as well. If you
      have a noteworthy winter sighting from a county without a Subregional Editor,
      please send records to the Regional Editors below.

      Records of loons-frigatebirds and larids-alcids go to Scott Terrill and Tom
      Ryan at:
      H.T. Harvey & Associates
      3150 Almaden Expwy., Suite 145
      San Jose, CA 95118

      Records of herons to shorebirds go to Mike Rogers at:
      499 Novato Ave.
      Sunnyvale, CA 94086

      Records of doves through thrushes/Wrentit (in the new AOU order, that
      includes vireos and shrikes) go to Steve Glover at:
      6526 Conestoga Lane
      Dublin, CA 94568

      Records of thrashers to finches go to Luke Cole at:

      We currently have no regional editors for Fresno, Madera, Marin, Mariposa,
      Tulare and Tuolumne Counties. Records from these counties should be sent
      directly to the Regional Editors.

      The Reporting Deadlines are:
      Spring Summer Fall Winter

      Season ends May 31 July 31 Nov 30 Feb 28

      Observer reports to Subregional Editors (SREs)
      June 10 Aug 10 Dec 10 Mar 10

      Observer reports to Regional Editors (if not sent to SRE)
      June 10 Aug 10 Dec 10 Mar 10

      SRE reports to Regional Editors
      June 20 Aug 20 Dec 20 Mar 20

      Regional Editors final text to ABA office
      July 10 Sep 10 Jan 10 Apr 10

      PLEASE meet your deadlines so that we can meet our deadlines!

      Please send reports in our preferred order: species, date(s) [including
      year], locale, co. abbrev., number of birds, and observer, and then, on a second
      line, any comments. Please separate these sections by a "tab" (except just a
      space between locale and county abbreviation) on electronic versions submitted.
      Again, here's an example of the correct format:

      Grace's Warbler 12/13/98-2/20/99 Jacks Peak MTY
      1 RFT, mob
      A second record for the Region (the first was 6/26/91 at Deer Spring,
      Glass Mt. MNO) which wintered with a large flock of Townsend's & Hermit warblers
      at the very top of Jacks Peak in Jacks Peak Regional Park. Details by Tintle
      and others are enclosed.

      Many observers and Subregional Editors have been submitting their reports
      electronically, either on a diskette or by e-mail. PLEASE submit electronic
      reports if possible. We are trying to maintain an electronic database of at least
      recent records, and we hope to be able to have all old data entered
      eventually so that the entire database will be easily accessible to anyone who wants
      it. Electronic submission of records in the format described above makes it
      much easier for us maintain this electronic database.

      We've heard questions about, comments on, and criticism of our regional
      reports from several observers and SREs. We really appreciate this feedback, as it
      helps us to better represent what is going on in the Region as a whole.
      Please help us correct any factual errors we make, and don't hesitate to let us
      know what you think of the reports.

      Many thanks to all the contributors and Subregional Editors who make these
      reports possible!


      Luke Cole, Mike Rogers, Scott Terrill, and Steve Glover
