Posts to Obol are down by nearly an order of magnitude from a decade ago. I hardly think a daily digest of eBird rare bird alerts is going to "overload" the list. To the contrary, it would be a sort of blood transfusion. It's going to be clearly labeled l assume, so simply delete the post without opening it. Or save it for a rainy day.

Rather than overloading THIS list, can OBA/OBOL setup another lists for those that want to subscribe to eBird alerts, say <obol-ebird-alerts...>? Other than how to deal with password resets showing up on the new list, and list can also be the eBird login, and someone would admin that eBird account.

Thanks to chris for this good idea. Probably the moderator would be the best to do this if willing. A comment though. I've subscribed to the WA state rba thru eBird for many years and the average list has about 20 birds which are perhaps? local rarities? and must be waded thru for 'true' rarities which are not priorities in the list.
