Central Sierra Bird Sightings

For up-to-date sighting listings, Central Sierra Audubon’s Listserv, CSAS_Birds is available to anyone interested.  Our club would like to build up a database of sightings, and your participation is needed. It is very easy to join:  Just send an email to the Webmaster and request to join the CSAS_Birds Listserv.  You will receive an “invitation” via email and then all you need to do is click on the line to join. It is that easy!  If you have any questions, send an email and the listserv moderator will get back to you.

Members are expected to post recent sightings, ask questions and exchange information on birds and birding knowledge roughly within the boundaries of the Central Sierra Audubon Society’s region of California. This area includes Calaveras and Tuolumne counties and welcomes members from all over.

 

eBird — The most recent Tuolumne and Calaveras sightings

There are many more sightings posted on eBird for our area than are posted on CSAS_Birds and it is very easy to check on what is being seen by searching in our two counties. First log on to eBird, click on the top tab “Explore Data” then on the next page click on “Explore a Region.” Next, type in either “Tuolumne” or “Calaveras”. When the list appears, clicking on “Recent Visits” will show what’s been seen.  If you have not registered in eBird, to register, click on “Create an Account”, and fill in the blanks, choosing your user name, password and email address. After registering, there is a Quick Start Guide that will help you starting to enjoy the benefits of eBird, and starting with your own entries.
