      Hi,

      Audubon California Important Bird Area Program staff is gathering
      Bendire's Thrasher observation records in California to help with the
      Global IBA review process. They are reviewing the pre-existing 145
      California IBAs to see which qualify as Global IBAs. Bendire's
      Thrasher, at a threshold of 30 individuals or 10 breeding pairs, is a
      species that triggers Global IBA status.

      Although the existing literature on Bendire's Thrasher provides a
      welcome base, observation records are requested from all of you who
      have observed this species in California in order to develop the most
      complete status and distribution information possible.

      All observation records would be helpful no matter how old.
      Observation records from the years 2000-2009+ would be especially helpful.

      Records from all observation locations would be helpful. Observations
      made in the following habitats/locations would be especially helpful.
      * Mojave National Reserve/Cima Dome
      * Colorado Desert microphyll woodlands
      * East Mojave springs
      * Kern County's Butterbredt Canyon & Eastern Sierra - Kelso Creek
      watershed - Kelso Valley complex
      * Mojave River corridor
      Any information is welcome. Of course, the more complete the better.
      * date
      * location (as specific as possible ... even if no date)
      * nesting evidence
      * habitat (as complete as possible)
      I have volunteered to assist by compiling your Bendire's Thrasher
      information submissions and passing it on to Audubon California IBA
      Program staff. Please email reply with your observations to:
      bbarnes@... (Bob Barnes)

      Submissions received ASAP (in the next one to two weeks) will best
      fit in with Audubon's Bendire's Thrasher IBA work time line.

      Thank you in advance for assisting Audubon in their efforts to best
      insure the long-term survival of Bendire's Thrasher in California and
      throughout this species' range.

      Continued Happy & Productive Birding,

      Bob Barnes

      P.S.: Please forward this request to any individual or listserv you
      believe might only receive it via your forward. Thank you. BB.
