Since the RBA report comes out every morning, how is it more timely than Ebird reports entered after a day of birding? Some Ebird reports come up much sooner, of course, and a regular post to COBIRDS comes up sooner, but the daily RBA report as far as I know comes out every morning. Or is there something else you're talking about - a different RBA report - or something I'm missing? I don't think we're talking about getting rid of COBIRDS altogether, but rather talking about the specific morning report since the compiler is retiring and new volunteers are needed to take it over?

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.
