English (USA)

This Listserv is designed to facilitate communications in regards to the observations of rare bird species on PEI as well as document seasonal and migration reports of sightings on PEI.

Where possible, please use the following prefixes in the Subject Line:

If it is a rare bird report please place " RBA: " in the subject line.

If it is a Trip Report please place " TR: " in the Subject Line.

If it is a Feeder/yard report please place " FR: " in the subject line.

If it is a new year bird or observed out of season please place " FB: " in the header.

This will facilitate the scanning of headers by those who are looking for specific reports or by those who are subscribed but live off-island.

If you are reporting a Rarity, please document the sighting either with photographs or by a detailed written report. This is important in order to ensure that the sighting be included as part of the record for PEI.

Details on how to complete a Rarity Document Form may be found at:

Please send the completed forms and / or photographs to Dan McAskill, C/O NHSPEI, PO Box 2346, Charlottetown, PE, C1A-8C1.

Thank you and Good Birding!
