I’m amazed by the number of people who have written me and thanked me for posting about the Black-legged Kittiwake in Port Townsend. I looked on eBird and discovered that a number of people had seen the bird earlier in March, but apparently didn’t post it on tweeters. That sparked a thought.
Please remember that posting a rarity or sem-rarity, in other words a bird that others would very much like to see, on eBird doesn’t mean that you’re sharing it with your local birding community. Lots of people aren’t on eBird.
