I am the editor for the Indiana Birder's List article that appears annually in the Indiana Audubon Quarterly. I would hope that you would submit your 2017 lists to me. The deadline for doing this is February 1. Lists that may be sent are World, North America, ABA without Hawaii, ABA with Hawaii, Indiana, Indiana county lists and your property list. You may submit both life and year lists. The lists should be what you saw up to and including December 31, 2017. There is no charge for doing this. You may find a form on the IAS webpage under birds to send your lists electronically. You may use the form included with this email and send it to me either by email or snail mail. I will only need the numbers seen and not the actual lists of species. You may also include property lists. If you include property lists please give a brief description of your property: urban yard, suburban yard, or country yard. Also give an approximate size estimate. An urban or suburban yard might be measured in feet such as 50 by 70 feet and a country yard in acres such as 25 acres. If you did this description last year you do not need to repeat this information unless it has changed. Except for property lists there will be a threshold of 50 species.
You may include interesting information about your birding activities such as places you birded and milestone birds that you saw.
The ABA Continental list the one without Hawaii only includes Canada and the United States. The ABA list now includes Hawaii. Both lists may be submitted. The North America list covers everything north of the Columbian-Panamanian border. It also includes the West Indies, Mexico and Central America but not Hawaii.
While membership in the IAS is suggested for people who are involved in the list report, it is not a requirement. People who are not members will still have their lists included.
The list article will be published in the May Quarterly issue.
