KSBIRD-L Subscription Information
Kansas birds and Kansas birding are discussed in a lively listserv, which
is maintained by Chuck Otte at Kansas State University. The topic of the
listserv is "Birds and their habitats in Kansas," and you are welcome to
join and participate in the discussions. This list has been created to
provide a forum whereby any interested individuals can join into a discussion
of Kansas Birds. This is a list dedicated to wild birds not caged, pet
or domesticated birds. This discussion can include, but is not limited
to, bird sightings - housing - feeding, conservation and political issues
that pertain to birds of Kansas, questions of all kinds regarding wild
birds, postings of recent birding trips around (or near) Kansas, etc.
You can read the archived messages and even join the list at the
website. If you have questions, contact one of the listowners,
Jerry Reeck, or Dave
