Friday Weekly Summary Posts provide a weekly update, and let you know, even if there are no NGR birds reported in a given week, that The NGR is alive, well, and still on the job! NGR weeks always start on Saturdays! :^)

Current NGR RBA MODE: CASUAL
See Modus Operandi section for mode descriptions.

THIS WEEK'S NOTES AND HIGHLIGHTS:

FL - WHITE-TAILED TROPICBIRD, RED-BILLED TROPICBIRD, and BROWN BOOBY
SC - The SCOTT'S ORIOLE posted on 5/9 has been rescinded and removed from The NGR. The consensus is that the bird is an Orchard Oriole, interesting reading on the NBHC ID-FRONTIERS Frontiers of Field Identification site, click link for the site archives (see link in . . .THE NGR TICKER. . . . . . or, in the Websites section)!

Great Relocations this week (See the 2011 NEWS AND UPDATES section):

AL - The 1/6 WESTERN GREBE was relocated on 5/16!

Good Near Georgia Birding!
