First of all I want to thank everyone who has made woodcreeper.com as successful as it has become; it is you who make up the 1000′s of daily visitors each spring and fall, and you who provide the feedback that let us all better understand what we’re seeing on the radar. What started in Spring 2004 as a mere curiosity has developed into not only an enduring passion but also a full-time job (my postdoctoral work at NJ Audubon and now the University of Delaware). Unfortunately all of this ‘work’ means I have less time to keep up with woodcreeper.com in a way that I feel is sufficient… so I’m opting to retire the daily updates for the time-being in an effort to spend more time working on my research and raising my two beautiful daughters (including taking them birding!). I’ll continue to post stories of interest to woodcreeper.com, including radar from time to time, but for regular updates you’ll have to turn to the other sites I’ve highlighted at the end of previous posts and listed in the sidebar to the right. If you’re interested in starting a migration site of your own please feel free to contact me and I’ll set you up with the code to do it.
Again, thank you for your enduring support throughout the years. This has been an awesome ride!
Cheers and Good Birding,
