Add a round of hip-hip-hoorays !!

Jeff is passionate about the Winter Raptor Surveys and birds of prey, and
keenly enthusiastic about the people he has drawn into this project. And
did anyone mention his attention to detail??

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.

for sure that just ain't so.
