For many years, the FLARBA (a member of the USF listserve system ), has provided birders with the latest information on Florida rarities. However, now available are various digital apps and sites that are better suited to provide birders with the latest information on rarities, making rather obsolete the FLARBA listserve. County Rare BIrds <> allows birders to get immediately all info posted to eBird about rarities found anywhere in the US and Canada. This info includes maps and GPS locations for each rare bird reported. There are also Florida Birding pages on Facebook that provide additional information on these rarities. Put "Florida birding" in the search block and look for pages that offer information on rarities.

The list owners appreciate all those who provided us over the years with pertinent information on FL rarities. We wish all of you good birding and safe travels. This is the final post on the FLARBA listserve.
