Yes, WISBIRDN via Freelists.org <http://freelists.org/> was down. Even an email to staff email address bounced, however, was able to get a message through via their FB page. Apparently their firewall suffered a meltdown but it’s obviously been resolved. Hope to hear back as to why but for now, things seem to be working again. Sorry for the inconvenience! I see migration has begun in Wisconsin - same here in southeastern Arizona. Presently our hummingbird feeders in the yard are being taken over by migrating Rufous Hummingbirds (mostly young males). Carol and I are now volunteering weekly at Ramsey Canyon TNC property and the big deal here a few days ago was a one-day wonder Blue-winged Warbler. Certainly way off its normal migration route. But then isn’t this part of what makes birding so much fun?

It appears that the Freelists server was down, as neither listowner Tom Sykes or I could get into the administrative portal, either. Tom did send an email to the tech guys at Freelists, but I haven't heard back from him yet. It appears that all of the posts did go through eventually, so take that into account when you're catching up (i.e., anything that says "this morning" may actually be referring to TUESDAY morning, not Wednesday.) > > > Peter Fissel > Wisbirdn Admin/Monitor Guy > Madison WI > #################### > You received this email because you are subscribed to the Wisconsin Birding Network (Wisbirdn). > To UNSUBSCRIBE or SUBSCRIBE, use the Wisbirdn web interface at: http://www.freelists.org/list/wisbirdn > To set DIGEST or VACATION modes, use the Wisbirdn web interface at: http://www.freelists.org/list/wisbirdn > Visit Wisbirdn ARCHIVES at: http://www.freelists.org/archives/wisbirdn > >
