Subject: [CT Birds] Reporting info for Big January 2021 Atlas competition
Happy New Year everyone!

A number of people have asked for clarification on reporting information
for the Big January 2021 competition. So here is a reminder (there will
likely be more as this is new for everyone):

The actual survey data is reported to the Atlas Project but for scoring
points for the competition participants need to report to me (Dave
Provencher) via email or USPS. The reason for this is to save the Atlas
team members handling the actual survey data the additional task of
tracking participant's points (they are working hard enough already!)

So, *actual survey data* is submitted either by eBird checklist (preferred,
and remember to *share the checklist* with CT Bird Atlas), a scanned copy
of the atlas form emailed to <ctbirdatlasdata...>, or mailed hard copy
via USPS (address is on the data form, which can be found on the atlas

And for scoring points to be tabulated, *the survey date, time, and block
number (not the bird data collected) must be emailed
to <hikerbirder1...> <hikerbirder1...> or mailed to Dave
Provencher, 11 Ortega Drive, Preston, CT. 06365.*

Thanks everyone, keep the questions coming,

Dave Provencher
CT Bird Atlas Project Southeast Region Coordinator
