I am on 5 FL lists, BRDBRAIN is by far the most active and has conversations well beyond RBAs. I will say of the dozen states I am on lists in, OBOL generates more messages than pretty much any other. And, when I have had visits to OR, OBOL has been a great place to get advice on finding target birds.

Hi folks,

I'm visiting South Florida right now, and the birds are quite good (a Prairie Warbler singing outside my bedroom window was fun). I was considering asking the state listserv about a strange sound coming from an invisible source in a tree, but I discovered that Florida's state list has very little activity--maybe abandoned in favor of eBird and other modern sources. There was only one post there in the entire last week. As much of an eBird fan as I am, I wanted to say that I'm very greatful that Oregon maintains this list and keeps alive the sense of community and human approach to reports. I think it adds a lot to being an Oregon border.

Hope everyone's migration is going wonderfully!
