This website would not be the amazing resource that it is without the efforts of many contributors, and it will not remain vibrant and up-to-date without frequent additions, deletions and revisions.  So..... if you know something about Oregon birding that we don't know, please email us.  We thank you all.

The East Cascades Audubon Society designed and manages this web site with help from the Oregon Birders.

Kim Owen from Redmond, OR provided the photo used in the header of the web site. 

We use an Open Source Content Management System, DotNetNuke.

We used a free on-line tool to create the image map on the home page ... details

PageBreeze Free HTML Editor was used to work directly with HTML

To create icons we used a free tool: Jpg to icon converter ... details

Birding locations have been transfered from this site to update the BirdNotes database.  This allows for anyone with an account to edit the information and keep the information current.  A big thank you to Joel Geier for the many hours of database time.  John Notis suggested the efficient way to link directly to the BirdNotes frame and created the KML files.

Chuck Gates deserves recognition for being the driving force behind this project and collecting most of the initial birding locations.
