Hi all

This is a short promotional email for all of you
out there that like to keep track of your birding
adventures. Worldtwitcher is a new
web site that gives you FREE access to bird and
mammal lists for almost all countries in the
world. Even subspecies are in most cases listed.
You can also add personal lists for the backyard,
latest Tassie holiday or year 2006. Pictures can
be added too. There are also features that can
give you the list of your "unseen" birds in a
country or the combined Asian list if you have
been to several countries and would like to know
the total. Of course you see a lifer list when
you have added all your sightings. Printouts are
possible. Ranking lists of totals and countries
are available to compare with your friends. Of
course you can choose to hide all your lists and just keep it privately.

Worldtwitcher is run by a Swedish guy, Nicklas
Strömberg with some support from the Swedish
Club300 and the Ornithological Society. When
talking about bird lists there are always
problems about what to put on the lists as there
are always new splits and lumps and different
opinions about names. This web site follows
"Clements" and to some this might be strange but
that is the authority that most European birders
follow. No other options are available. It is
still under construction (version 2 just
released) and of course there are errors and
bugs. But if you find anything faulty just send
Nicklas an email and he will try to sort it out.

Hope that you join this great system and start
twitching. See you on the Aussie list........
