Hey there birders of NY, hope everyone's surviving okay. If you're out birding somewhere safe this weekend (or any weekend until the end of time), please consider looking out for female birds and contributing notes on sex-based differences to the Galbatrosses' new project <https://femalebirdday.wordpress.com/>. It will challenge you as a birder and naturalist, and help us (a bunch of Audubon scientists, editors, and conservationists) create a public field guide with female ID tips. You can share links to eBird checklists, of course--but the info we're seeking is qualitative, not quantitative!

Can't wait to learn what you find!
