"News from the Field" has been a regular article in the CFO's quarterly journal "Colorado Birds" for a long time, summarizing bird trends and rare birds in Colorado. I've enjoyed contributing during the last few years. It's been a great opportunity to learn about bird distributions in Colorado and what rare birds are being found around the state.
My contributions to "News from the Field" have relied heavily on the ebird "basic dataset". Unfortunately this ebird dataset isn't available to me any more.
It would be possible to write "News from the Field" from reports from Cobirds, the West Slope Birding Network, and social media. If you might be interested in contributing to "News from the Field", possibly taking it in a new direction, contact me (dave1wx at gmail.com) and Colorado Birds editor Christy Payne.
