Why am I offering this? Because I have benefitted greatly from the
knowledge gained from my chart, and others might benefit also. It helps you
to understand more about the seasonal movements of birds in your area.
Just email me if you'd like a copy. I'll send it as an attachment. I
believe it is clean, but you should put it through a virus checker anyway.
