Hi all, I get OBOL as a digest so I just saw reports of major
passerine flights in the mid-valley and elsewhere. Very exciting and a
privilege to witness. The kind of thing birders dream of.
I have done some sleuthing on eBird FAQ and help links, but haven't
been able to figure out how to get notifications for these kinds of
things. I have my account set for Benton County rare bird alerts, but
of course that only applies to rare birds or common birds out of
season, etc, not these kinds of exciting phenomena. The occurrence of
a major passerine flight at Finley wasn't reported to the mid-valley
list-serve nor to OBOL, so I only know about it through Phil
Pickering's report.
So, I'm wondering if there is a way to query eBird or be alerted
for these kinds of occurrences if they don't get reported on a
Thanks, and happy birding!
