Thanks for the kudos for the OB Field Notes! I'd like to pass them on to
the dedicated and excellent team of seventeen regional compilers that is
currently working to make the annual OB Field Notes section possible. In
fact, for the first time in several years, the upcoming Spring Issue of *Oregon
Birds* will again have complete coverage of all of our state's counties!
And a big Thank You to you and Chris for taking on the often tedious job as
regional NAB editors!
