I will second Chuck's remarks. It is a labor of love and Jeff does a phenomenal job. He even apologized when he took a well-deserved vacation in Hawaii that he wasn't going to be inputting data when he was gone. Thanks for all you do, Jeff, you are amazing!

Subject: [obol] Kudos to Jeff Fleischer

Another winter raptor season has come to a conclusion and it occurred to
me that we, as a collective birding community, should show our
appreciation to Jeff Fleischer for all the amazing work he has done on
this extensive project. If you don't know, Jeff manages the wild beast
known as the ECAS Winter Raptor Surveys. This involves recruiting
hundreds of volunteers to visit over 300 routes looking for any raptor
they can find. Routes are found throughout Oregon, southern Washington,
northern California and Idaho. Each month, he collects hundreds of data
sheets from all these routes and crunches those numbers into monthly
summaries. At the end of the year, all the numbers are collated and
tallied and sent to the Peregrine Fund for inclusion in their permanent
database. He's been doing this for 15 years and the most amazing part
is he still plans on doing it again next year (instead of running
screaming into the night like I would do). OBTW - all of his work is
done on a volunteer basis.

I would like to give a round of applause, 3 chears, a hooraw, 4
atta-boys, 2 kudos and a full dozen felicitations to Mr. Fleischer for a
very difficult job done very well.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
