      Dear North American Birds Contributors,

      The summer season has come to a close so please submit your noteworthy records from the Northern California Region for the period 1 June – 31 July to the appropriate Subregional Editors (see below) or to the Regional Editors by 10 August.

      THERE ARE SEVERAL NEW NAMES ON THE LISTS BELOW, INCLUDING A NEW REGIONAL EDITOR, SO PLEASE CHECK THEM BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR RECORDS.

      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 the order in which we would like to receive details of the record and that there is a single tab between each piece of information (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.

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


      Please send reports in our database format: species, date(s) [including year], locale separated by a space from county abbreviation, number of birds, and observers, 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. 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 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!

      Sincerely,


      Mike Rogers, Jeff Davis, Ed Pandolfino, and Steve Rottenborn
