Whilst we have some great forums for general birding chat and for reporting 
sightings, if you want to submit / view IMMEDIATE rarity information, you could 

On the left hand side, there are rarity updates from the last three days. These 
are a continual feed of any Twitter posts that contain "@birdorarity". Anyone 
who tweets with that tag, will see their tweet appear on this page within 
seconds. This is not to replace the valuable service of Eremaea or birding-aus 
- the tweets on Bird-O are not stored anywhere, they are just for sharing 

It's just another way to communicate information fast, from your mobile phone 
or a desktop computer ... today, there were a number of inter-state visitors 
who could not get updates fast enough before booking flights. It's a great way 
for all of us to help out our birding mates : )

If you want to receive free (for the time being) first alerts about national 
rarities on your phone, just send your mobile number to  We'll 
add you to the growing list.

Merry Christmas,


PS - I will have some video of the Stilt Sandpiper up on Bird-O before the end 
of the afternoon.
