This speaks volume to the great work you do for birders all over NYC area and 
beyond. Many people appreciate all the timely info you provide in your accounts 
and many are benefitting a lot from it by getting on some exciting birds. 

My only wish is that those who follow you and get the benefit of your tweets 
would return the favor and start using the hashtag words for each account. It 
will only take an additional few seconds for every tweet they write. 

Just add #birdbk for Brooklyn tweets, #birdqu for Queens tweets and #birdbx for 
Bronx tweets and #birdcp for Manhattan tweets. 

David works very hard to keep the city birders well-informed. He deserved all 
the help he can get from the birding community.
