  1. You’ve got 10 on me Les. Flamingo, Avocet, White-rumped Sandpiper, Wilson’s Snipe, Least Tern, Lewis’s Woodpecker, Mountain Bluebird, Western Tanager and Pine Grosbeak.

    Where did you find the Grosbeak? They’ve been very tricky for me to try and track down.

  2. Good list. I got to get more shore birds. How many of your first hits came from ZA?

  3. Yeah Sora! My first bird guiding attempt is successful!
