I wish that people who post would not assume that we are all as knowledgable
as they.  Postings like "1 PO,1 PR  and  2 CO" means nothing to me - and I'm
really interested in what birds were seen.  Also, a general comment about
reports to VTBIRD,postings without specific locations aren"t too helpful to
people looking for new places to bird. Just a brief description of how to
access the place being reported would be most welcome.
