Before everyone runs away to their holiday weekend/week please remember that 
the 2007 Spring Seasonal reports are due by JUNE 10. (Mark your calendars)
Please include the following for rare, casual to accidental sightings (see 
MO checklist and/or Robbins and Easterla)
- species seen
- date seen
- conservation area AND county observed (please! :-)
- name of observer(s)
- why it is rare
Early or late dates,  high or low numbers seen, rare or never seen for area 
in migration,  rare breeder, range expansion, etc.
- if it needs documentation (casual or accidental species) please note if it 
was sent in or still pending (please consult Bill Rowe, the ASM MBRC 
Secretary, if you think your sighting might need documentation. [log in to unmask] 
. OR check the MBRC review list if it needs documentation. 
http://mobirds.org/MBRC/review.asp    )
- if it is rather rare (i.e. 2 Western grebes in the East) but does not need 
documentation, please consider adding a description of the bird(s) seen and 
why you IDed this bird as that.
- Optional: Any general comments about certain species/groups of birds' 
migration or migration in general.
- Optional: Any unusual weather conditions for your area if you kept tract 
of them. How did it relate to the migration?

This is not solely for CACHE or SPARKS but for the permanent ornithological 
records, so please consider contributing your information. Also a reminder 
that just reporting to these two previous named data bases and/or to Mobirds 
does not guarantee that info will be included in the Seasonal Report. Also 
because of the shear volume of data given, it will be up to ours' and the 
reviewers' discretion as to what to include...but please don't let that 
deter you from submitting it.

This spring migration has been rather unusual and will bound to have MANY 
early dates of several species (i.e. as seen on the Ruby-throated 
hummingbird migration). PLEASE help reflect that trend by submitting your 
comprehensive info.to the below e-mail (as attachment or within the e-mail - 
we have high-speed internet connection), or one can search the ASM website 
for our snail mail address.

Any questions?......don't hesitate to ask.

Many thanks in advance.

Good birding.....good and safe holiday,
Jim and Charlene Malone, Spring Seasonal Editors
