new birding website(s)
 
The international nature observations website observado.org is developing further. A lot of (European) birders are already using this free website for their birding.

Main page (whole world):
http://observado.org

Overview of sub-sites for all Caribbean Islands:
http://observado.org/countries_cam.php

Sightings former Netherlands Antilles island:
http://sintmaarten.observado.org/
http://bonaire.observado.org/
http://aruba.observado.org
http://curacao.observado.org
http://steustatius.observado.org
http://saba.observado.org/

Hope you are interested in using the site and perhaps are able to spread the word to other birders in the region.

Hans Verdaat, welcome to birdforum!

Contrary to you, I hope that the majority of birders will use one of the already established repositories for the Caribbean, of which my favorite is Ebird Caribbean. There are to my mind not enough birders in the area to dilute the knowledge assembled by spreading it over several repositories.

Disclaimer: I am a reviewer for Ebird for Dominica.

Hello Niels,

Thanks for your reply: you are correct about dilution of sightings. For this reason (and others) there is a close cooperation between E-Bird & Observado.org

There is a exchage of data, this makes it easier for users to continue to work with the system that they are used to 'back home'.

update: Sint Eustatius = http://statia.observado.org

Kind regards,
Hans
