Technologically inclined birders may find this event interesting. Thanks to Joan Collins of the Northern NY Birds group for the tip. Full event details below. As some of you might know, the Adirondack Regional Tourism Council has recently rolled out the Adirondack Birding Guide which features the regions birding sites combined with Google Map technology.

The TourPro is extremely interested in integrating sites, sightings, eBird, and other social-networking and information systems to enhance the birding in our area.

"Sharing Bird Sightings in the 21st Century"
Stowell Hall, SUNY Potsdam 7 p.m.

Jeff Bolsinger has recently assumed the position of Region 6 Report Editor for
The Kingbird.  Jeff will talk about the types of sightings that merit reporting
to The Kingbird, and describe several ways to submit observations.  This talk
will emphasize upcoming changes to eBird that will allow Regional Editors to
create reports from sightings that birders submit online.  Jeff will also
discuss the "Northern New York Birds" list serve.

Jeff has a BS in zoology from Oregon State University, where he started birding
in 1985.  He received a MS degree in biology in 1997 from the University of
Massachusetts, Amherst, where he studied the singing behavior of the federally
endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler.  The field work was conducted at Fort Hood,
Texas.  Since 1995, Jeff has monitored breeding bird populations on Fort Drum.
Other bird projects he has worked on include monitoring winter survival of
reintroduced Masked Bobwhite on the Buenos Aires NWR in Arizona, banding migrant
land birds at Manomet Bird Observatory (now Manomet Center for Conservation
Science) in Massachusetts, and, of course, the NYS Breeding Bird Atlas.
