Reporter: Rangel Diaz. Directions: Curry Hammock SP is located along 
both sides of U.S. 1, starting at Little Crawl Key, Mile Marker 56.2, 11 
miles west of Long Key. Entrance to the park is on the oceanside of U.S. 
1. *The park has reopened after being closed because of Hurricane 
Matthew*. But the observers stressed that the Mangrove Swallow and the 
approx 20 Cliff Swallows with it continued SW past the FL Keys Hawkwatch 
and farther down the Keys—probably to Key West.  Any fresh water pool 
below Curry Hammock SP and especially in the area of Key West would 
probably be a good place to check for this group of swallows.

From: Lyn Atherton <bonniedabird AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Wed, 6 Jul 2016 15:01:29 -0400
With assurances from many FLARBA subscribers that this list is the most 
accurate and useful tool for announcing FL rarities, and in response to 
numerous requests that it not be discontinued, the list owners are 
reactivating the FLARBA as of today. We have learned that many birders, 
USA and abroad, rely heavily on the alerts  while in Florida, and many 
planning trips from afar depend upon the updates. With your support, we 
will make every effort to continue the list with brief but timely and 
accurate reports. We ask that you send the details of your observations 
directly to the FLARBA  so that we can send out 
the alerts in an even more timely manner. If possible, please include 
the GPS coordinates, so that we can provide birders with precise 
locations. We also encourage subscribers of Birdbrains and other 
listserves to cc the details to those listserves, too. Thank you for 
your interest and participation in providing us with the vital 
information we need to send out reports.

From: Lyn Atherton <bonniedabird AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Sat, 2 Jul 2016 09:18:33 -0400
The FLARBA—a list of the USF listservsystem—was established many years 
ago to provideFL resident birders and visiting birders the latest 
informationon rare birds present in the state. But now eBirdshas 
developed into the premier servicefor all aspects of birding, including 
reports of rarities. Therefore, the FLARBA will cease immediately to 
send out any more reports of rarities. However, forthe time being, the 
FLARBA Archives will remain available. To reach the FLARBA Archives go 
to . Please go to 
 to learn about the many tools 
available at eBirds.

The FLARBA list ownersappreciate all thesupportthat birders have 
provided us over the years—making this list one of themost active and 
reliable RBAs in North America.

Good birding always!

Date: Sun, 31 Jan 2016 22:16:25 -0500
1/31/16-- Up to14 Vaux’s Swift, Alachua County, University Of Florida Campus 
(Dauer Hall), Gainesville. Observers: M.ob. Directions: From I-75 exit 387, 
head east on Rt. 26 (W. Newberry Rd.). Follow this till it turns into W. 
University Ave at the University of Florida. Parking is a bit tricky: Look for 
parking in the blocks east and west of NW 17th Street, and within a few blocks 
of University Ave. Towing is a common thing in this area, so do not park in 
restaurant or other business’s parking areas or around student dorms. Once 
you have found parking walk south on 17th St. to University Ave.  Across 
University Ave., 17th Street continues, but it's called Buckman Drive. So after 
crossing University Ave., continue south on Buckman Dr. about  tenth of a 
mile. At the point where Union Rd. comes in from the east you'll see Dauer 
Hall (there's probably a sign beside the road). Go to the south end of Dauer 
Hall and look up. You'll see two chimneys side-by-side. The flock of swifts 
generally come in between 5:15 and 5:35PM, fly around for a bit and then fly 
into the chimney's. There's a little courtyard there, which serves as a good 
place to stand and watch for the swifts.
