RBA Numbers

North American Rare Bird Alert Telephone Listing

Most RBAs are now available on the internet (see www.birdingonthe.net/birdmail.html). But telephone hotlines remain a valuable birding resource, particularly for traveling birders and others without easy access to a computer. We urge the continuation of telephone RBA service, and ask that hotline administrators advise the editor of any updates, corrections, or additions to the list.

Many thanks to compilers, administrators, and contributors for their help in compiling and distributing information bird sightings in their regions!
