This page serves as an interface that allows authorized members of the Augusta Bird Club to make updates to the content of certain pages of this Web site themselves, without having to go through the Web master. At present, two items -- rare bird alerts and field trips -- can be updated through this new system. Eventually, it may become possible to update club-related news stories with this system as well. IMPORTANT: Any rare bird alerts should be brought to the attention of Allen Larner via telephone or e-mail (see the Club contacts page), and likewise any proposed field trips.

How to make updates

For the time being, anyone can post rare bird alerts on this Web site, but if spam gets to be a problem we may have to go back to the old system requiring people to register first. When you are sure you have entered the correct information in the forms below, click the appropriate "Submit" button.

UPDATE on updates: Due to "spam" attacks, the bird alert update function has been disabled. Stay tuned for remedial measures...

Bird alert update

On August 3 and 4, a Swallow-tailed Kite was seen in Rockbridge County south of Buena Vista, at the intersection of River Road (Rt. 663) and Brady Mountain Road (Rt. 841).

Please enter the new bird alert text in the box below, being as concise as possible. IMPORTANT: If you would like to keep any of the existing bird alert text, please copy it from the box on the right, and paste it in AT THE END of what you write. Otherwise, it will be deleted.

NOTE: The initials of the person doing the updating will automatically be displayed at the beginning of the new text, if he or she has registered.

You have not yet registered for this Web site, so you cannot post proposed field trips. Please register.
