July/August Birding Online content Arriving!
The July/August issue of Birding should be heading to your mailbox in the next two weeks, but the online supplemental component is starting to show up at the ABA’s website right now.
Amy Davis’s superb Sightings column, rounding up the recent notable bird sightings from across the ABA Area, is up to date through May and June of this year. In addition, answers and analysis of the redpoll quiz from the last issue are available, so check it out to see how well you did. And all three of the July/August book reviews have been posted.
Keep an eye on the ABA Blog and the Birding Online homepage for more content as it is launched. And keep an eye on your mailbox for your print copy of Birding, with feature articles on everything from rise of birding in China to long-term changes in the birdlife of California.
Online Membership Directory Request!
Remember when you used to get a form in the mail to update your information to share with other ABA members? Then, a few months later, there would be something in your mail…often with already outdated information?
Well, it is time to fill in that form again! But, this time, you will get instant gratification. You can update it whenever you want! The ABA’s membership directory, now entirely online, is the best way to find and contact birders from across the ABA Area and all over the world. In order for the service to be as effective as it can be, we need ABA members, we need you, to visit the site and update your information.
The ABA Membership Directory is where you get the word out. Are you willing to guide other birders in your area? Want a fee? Let them know! You are in control of what your fellow members see.
If you’re an ABA member, we already have your address, but we’d love to have your phone number and updated email as well. You can also go here to update any changes, anytime. Day or night.
ABA members are fond of using the directory to find local guides, contact members willing to provide information, and update contact information following a move. But we can’t do it justice without your help.
Please help us fill in the blanks in our Membership Directory. Connect with your fellow birders with always up-to-the-minute correct information. We know how much this directory means to us all. It was an amazing tool then, and it can be even more amazing now.
