Here are the guidelines for posting:
Sightings should be on Whidbey Island or relate in some way to Whidbey Audubon. Reports should refer to birds or other wildlife that are not commonly seen here. Alternatively, they may refer to migratory birds that arrive outside their normal seasons.
Reports of especially interesting sightings in nearby areas are welcome. Greater selectivity is needed to keep the email volume reasonable, so editors will exercise judgment on whether the rarity, proximity, and significance of sightings merit inclusion.
These guidelines reflect the interests local birders have. Please respect the essentially scientific nature of the Sightings feature. Thanks for your cooperation.
Thanks for reporting this unusual bird sighting. Besides helping to keep track of local bird activity, this information also helps birders observe birds (and other wildlife) seen on the island less often.
