"You are right Gail.    I was basing my reply on the comment that it would be $1. per member (1600 members) per year to maintain BNB. However if 1600 members each donated $1.oo through gofundme it would not be sufficent.  ($1.oo - 7.9%…"

"I believe it is 7.9% of the donation and another $0.30 per donation.  That would be $2.28 for a $25 donation  - just over 9.1%."

Happy Belated Anniversary Birding New Brunswick

Posted on October 11, 2013 at 8:29am 11 Comments

I missed the actually anniversary again this year, I always associate the beginnings of the site with Thanksgiving, the family was away and I had lots of time to play around with My Page settings etc.  

Anyway, it was three years ago October 7 and the site is still going strong, successful because of all the folks who put so much time into it, both administrative and (especially) those who have a specific area of expertise that they share with all us beginners. 

Thanks ALL for…

"Firsts" of Season

Posted on May 29, 2011 at 9:16am 0 Comments

I've been busy recently and let the featuring firsts slip a bit, unless I keep on top of it, it is easy to miss something.  If you've added a photo that is a first, could you please drop me a note perhaps with the link, it'd make my job easier.  Also let me know if I feature something twice, etc.

 

There are some rarities that I'm not sure should be featured first of season if they don't occur very often.  What do you folks think?  

 

Photos of Breeding Evidence

Posted on May 29, 2011 at 9:00am 4 Comments

We discussed asking for photos of breeding evidence, ie. gathering nesting material, courtship, carrying food, feeding young, nestlings, carrying fecal sacs, fledglings etc.  

It's a tricky subject and we don't want to encourage people to disturb nests in order to get a picture, but the information could prove useful if done in a respectful manner.  (That shouldn't be a problem with members on this site.)

I'll look for more input from those involved in the MBBA as to what to…
