    Dear North American Birds Contributors,
    
    The brief summer season has already come to a close so
    please send your noteworthy records from the Middle
    Pacific Coast Region for the period 1 June- 31 July to
    the appropriate Subregional Editors (see below) or to
    the Regional Editors by 10 August.  
    
    Please pay special attention to the format example
    given at the end of this message. Reports that are
    formatted properly make our job far easier. In
    particular, it is important to note that there is a
    single tab between species, date, etc. 
    
    PLEASE use Subregional Editors for the counties that
    have them.  These SREs painstakingly keep track of
    records within their counties and are in most cases
    THE source of information on the birds of their
    counties.  By sending your records to the SREs, you
    are helping to contribute to their county files as
    well as to North American Birds.  If you wish to send
    copies to the Regional Editors, we welcome them, but
    please send records through the SREs as well.  If you
    have a noteworthy winter sighting from a county
    without a Subregional Editor, please send records to
    the Regional Editors below.
    
    Records of loons-frigatebirds and larids-alcids go to

    PLEASE meet your deadlines so that we can meet our
    deadlines!
    
    
    Please send reports in our preferred order: species,
    date(s) [including year], locale, co. abbrev., number
    of birds, and observer, and then, on a second line,
    any comments.  Please separate these sections by a
    "tab" (except just a space between locale and county
    abbreviation) on electronic versions submitted. 
    Again, here's an example of the correct format:
    
    Grace's Warbler	12/13/98-2/20/99  	Jacks Peak MTY  	1
    RFT, mob
       A second record for the Region (the first was
    6/26/91 at Deer Spring, Glass Mt. MNO) which wintered
    with a large flock of Townsend's & Hermit warblers at
    the very top of Jacks Peak in Jacks Peak Regional
    Park. Details by Tintle and others are enclosed.
    
    
    Many observers and Subregional Editors have been
    submitting their reports by e-mail.  PLEASE submit
    electronic reports if possible.  We are trying to
    maintain an electronic database of at least recent
    records, and we hope to be able to have all old data
    entered eventually so that the entire database will be
    easily accessible to anyone who wants it.  Electronic
    submission of records in the format described above
    makes it much easier for us maintain this electronic
    database.
    
    We've heard questions about, comments on, and
    criticism of our regional reports from several
    observers and SREs.  We really appreciate this
    feedback, as it helps us to better represent what is
    going on in the Region as a whole.  Please help us
    correct any factual errors we make, and don't hesitate
    to let us know what you think of the reports.
    
    Many thanks to all the contributors and Subregional
    Editors who make these reports possible!
    
    Sincerely,
    
    
    Luke Cole, Mike Rogers, Scott Terrill, and Steve
    Glover
    
    (Middle Pacific Coast Regional Editors)
