    Join the ABA Rare Bird Alert Facebook Group

    If you’re a Facebooking birder (and not everyone is) with an interest in how this new social media world applies to rarity finding, the American Birding Association has created a new Facebook group dedicated to the sharing and discussion of rarities from the ABA Area and Hawaii.

    Birders from all over the continent, and indeed the world, are welcome to join and contribute.  In fact, the more members we have from across North America, the better the group will be at monitoring vagrant occurrence across the continent.  The group is called ABA Rare Bird Alert.

    So come join 900+ fellow North American birders as we revel in rarities and live vicariously through vagrants across the continent at ABA Rare Bird Alert!

    The following two tabs change content below.

    Birders know well that the healthiest, most dynamic choruses contain many different voices. The birding community encompasses a wide variety of interests, talents, and convictions. All are welcome.
    If you like birding, we want to hear from you.

    • Book Review: Petrels, Albatrosses, and Storm-Petrels of North America October 1, 2014 12:36
      Tubenoses - well-adapted birds that spend most of their lives soaring over the open ocean - are shrouded in more mystery than any other group of birds.
