New Articles on E-Fauna BC: Birds of British Columbia

The Nature Notes section on E-Fauna BC has been changed recently to a Notes and Articles section which includes two categories: 1) Nature Notes and 2) Articles. The Articles section is new and allows us to bring in interesting and comprehensive articles on BC species prepared by experts.  As a start we are adding a series of articles on the Birds of British Columbia prepared by Rick Toochin.  Ten articles are now posted:

Blackburnian Warbler
Ferruginous Hawk
Least Auklet
King Eider
Long-billed Murrelet
Philadelphia Vireo
Pine Warbler 
Prairie Warbler
Red-Necked Stint
Scarlet Tanager

Rick's articles provide comprehensive detailed information on bird species in BC covering topics such as first confirmed records for BC, status and occurrence in BC, and identification. These are easy to read articles that provide great overviews of the species as well as nuggets of information.  For example, read Rick's article on the first confirmed record of Pine Warbler in BC

To view all of the new bird articles, go to the E-Fauna home page and use the 'general information' menu on the left side of the page. Select for 'Notes and Articles'.

Contributions to the Notes and Articles section of E-Fauna BC are welcome.  We are particularly interested in articles on new species occurrences in the province and documentation of range expansions--information that can complement or add to our atlas pages would be very welcome.
