Rediscovering NARBA

Pam Morrice remembers the first week of 1985, when the North American Rare Bird Alert, or NARBA, got off to a great start. On its second day in business, the new rare-bird news service was contacted about a Eurasian bean goose seen at Nebraska’s DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge. NARBA issued one of its first alerts, birders across the country mobilized to go see the goose, and the New York Times reported the event in a roundup of national news. Birding – and this fledgling service – were on the map.
