Smooth-billed and Groove-billed Anis. Heckle and Jeckle. Dang!

Subject: [Tweeters] What Is YOUR Nemesis Bird??
I have received several emails lately that have reminded me of some "struggles" over the years...trying for a "Nemesis Bird". This year it was a Franklin's Gull for a photo. Missed 9 times including twice by just minutes before finally a photo at John Wayne Marina.
In 2013 it was a Western Screech Owl finally found with Mike Clarke at Lewis and Clark Trail SP. Without naming names I know birders who either for a year, life or county list just have not been able find Long Billed Curlew, Ruffed Grouse, Tricolored Blackbird, White Tailed Ptarmigan or something else even if they have been at the right place but just not at the right time.
What is or has been your "Nemesis Bird"? Share to entertain or just to let all know they are not alone in their misery.
