Greetings from Cape Town,

I would like to introduce a new email group called "megabirds". This group
is intended to keep us all up to date with what rarities have turned up in
other parts of the world. How many of you out there know that the U.K. has
just recently had its first Snowy Egret, Sweden has just had its first
Upland Sandpiper and Australia has just had its first Petchora Pipit? This
is what this group is intended for.

We would like to see the following on this group:

* Announcements of rarities in any country where there are, say, less than
10 records of that particular species, or if there has not been a twitchable
one for a number of years.
* Directions to websites that have photos of any of these particular birds
mentioned here.
* It might also be interesting to see notes on just how many people turned
out to see these birds.

I expect that, due to the nature of this group, this is not going to be a
particularly high traffic group. So, if you are interested in joining and
keeping up to date with what is happening around the world, send a blank
email to 

As I am not subscribed to all the email groups that might be interested,
could somebody please forward this message to the Neotropical, Middle East
and Far East groups to let them know about it as well. 

Looking forward to hearing what is happening around the world.

Kind Regards
Trevor Hardaker and John Graham
Cape Town, South Africa
