Vermilion Flycatcher Undercount
On this lovely Christmas Day I'm in the process of entering every area's numbers onto a spreadsheet. And I just discovered where I had failed to consider one group's count of Vermilion Flycatchers when quickly counting up what was surely a record high the day after the count. All-time record indeed: we had 190, not 178. Remember, the previous all-time high was "only" 116, set by the Kingsville, TX CBC in 2003; the previous Tucson Valley CBC high was 102 two years ago. We'll be inhaling Vermilion Flycatchers this time next year at this rate.
