Hi all, we are currently hard at work on the manuscript for the 2nd WV Breeding Bird Atlas, and along with that we're also hard at work compiling as many home-grown photographs as possible of all the states' breeding bird species. To-date, we've received a lot of submissions, but we still have a LONG list of species that we need photos for. Our only desire is that the pictures be taken in WV during breeding season (or what looks like breeding species). Photos need to be unedited and not watermarked, and the subject needs to be focused and clear. If a submitted picture is included in the book, the submitter will get credit! Any picture files need to include the species name, the county location, and the photographer's name. Please help! Our hope is to have the entire list covered, and we are planning to be DONE with all atlas work by the end of 2018.
Thanks! Rich Bailey, Elkins
