Non-SMBAS chapter content moves to new blog

September 16, 2020

This posting is intentionally STUCK here
Scroll down for all later and earlier postings

Dear SMBAS blog readers:

Blog editor Chuck Almdale (aka “Chukar”) decided after ten years that he wants to write about other, non-chapter, things. ChuckarBlog is the new forum. In addition to an archive of his old postings, it’ll have new videos, articles, links and bird photos, just like before. There’ll also be essays short and long and links to articles unrelated to SMBAS or birding, about politics, society and science. You’ll be entertained, intrigued, occasionally provoked.

SMBAS chapter content, including all prior postings of any sort, will remain on

New Blog:
New Facebook:
New Twitter:

      Hi Enid: It’s been a loooong 10 months since Back Bay Newport.

      1. Go to the new blog:
      2. Scroll down until you see something like:
      “Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.”
      On computers it should be on the right side of screen, but on small devices (phones, pads) it may be somewhere else.
      3. Click on it and enter your email address, then (probably) press enter.
      4. It will automatically send you a confirmation email. You must follow its instruction to confirm the subscription. (This keeps the spammers from signing you up for subscriptions you don’t want and also prevents bloggers like me from signing you up myself.)
      5. Once you’re confirmed, you should get every NEW email automatically.
      6. If you’re already making comments via WordPress membership, you may not have to sign up again, but I’m not sure about that.
      7. Your subscription begins with the NEXT email. If you want to see previously posted blogs, you’ll have to work backwards through the blog.
      Let me know if you have a problem.
      Bye! And thanks!
