I hope you see the NHO on your way to work tomorrow and I hope you
reconsider posting on ebird. What you post here on VT Bird benefits birders,
but not science.

Bryan was the one who convinced me to post what I observed on ebird way back
in the fall of 2003. I have not always been the most faithful ebirder, but
to know that something I enjoy can also contribute to science only adds to
the pleasure.

Thanks for thinking about it,
