I should have said I value the listserv and the RBA, which is a great consolidation of what is being seen each day. It is a "must-read" for me each day.

As an out-of-stater, who visits Colorado several times a year, I really value the listserv reports, even when I don't have a trip to Colorado pending. They really help me keep track of what's going on.
When I am in Colorado, the reports can help me find good birds when I am in the right place. I also try to post interesting sightings when I am fortunate enough to have them.
The listserv helps me feel like part of the community of Colorado birders, even when I'm not there. And when I am lucky enough to meet local birders, I often recognize their names from the reports, and it is nice to put faces with names.
