Welcome Back Birds and Birders!

Welcome back Birders (and birds!).  Just a friendly reminder to check out the Windsor-Essex-Pelee Birds (WEPBirds) list serve and share your sightings with everyone visiting the area.  Just go to www.wepbirds.com to get started.

WEP Birds is a local birding group page where group members can post sightings, ID questions, general tips, and anything else bird related.  It’s not just be about rarities.  Topics can include things like high counts, first of the year birds, late birds, a trip report, and so on!  The idea is not to take over fantastic resources like Ontbirds or Windsor-Essex Nature Sightings on Facebook, but rather extend these so discussions about the birds in this area.  The group is open to all experience levels – backyard beginner to “expert”.

On wepbirds.com, you will not only see the group discussions, but a calendar of local birding events as well as Birdtrax widgets showing all recent eBird reports from the area.

If you’re from the area, or just visiting, I hope you will visit the page, join the group & start sharing! To join, visit www.wepbirds.com and click on New Topic.  It will ask you to sign in to your Google Account (or create one if you don’t have one).  After signing in, just click “Apply to join group“.

Wepbirds is also on Twitter – Follow @WEPbirds

If you have any questions along the way, let me know.
