Today's, January 21, 2008, bird list (44 species) from our Audubonista outing at the Jocotepec malecon is posted on our new Birding Lake Chapala Discussion Forum at Bird Reports from Audubonista Outings. You can access this discussion forum using the BIRDING DISCUSSION FORUM link on the front page of www.avesajijic.com, or you can go directly to the forum with this link:
The focus of the discussion is on Lake Chapala Birds, but there are places to post about birds and birding destinations in the other parts of Mexico and the world. We're hoping that you will share your birding trips and lists with us and give us your recommendations for destinations, transportation, accommodations, guides, tours-well everything!
The forum is divided into these topic areas to make it easier to make your own posts and to browse the messages posted by others:

Register is where you set up your user name and password so that you can post to the forum. (You don't need to register to browse.) The more registered users we have, the better the forum community will be.
Profile is where you go if you want to make changes to your profile after you register.
Log in to check your private messages is where you go to read private messages (i.e., messages that others cannot see). When someone sends you a private message, you get a notice in your email that a message is waiting for you at the discussion forum. The sender never sees your email address. Even if you post your email address in your profile, if someone sends you an email through this site, they will never see your email address.)
Log in allows you to log in so that you can post messages.
Let us know how you like the forum. We think it helps replace Aves Gallery as a place to meet and chat about birding.
