Tim, That is great to hear since you are the one that got Les Carlson and me to do a Skamania County Big Day which led to us doing one each month for a Skamania Big Year. We added five new species to the county list that year, setting a record for each month and learned a lot more about birding my home county. I just checked Washington Birder at wabirder.com/ and was surprised to see that only three of the counties have a Big Day record for every month in the year and some counties don't have a single month with a record. TWEETS, take a look at your home county's list and think about submitting some records to fill in the blanks. Wilson Cady

Awesome list, Ken!
Had just been looking at Long-tailed Duck and Black-crowned Night-Heron as Kevin Black and I have been tossing around the idea of a Lewis County Big Year.
Lewis has quite a few “missing” birds that would be fun to find. Brewer’s Sparrow and Spruce Grouse (both with single eBird records but not on the county list apparently), Lapland Longspur, Black-necked Stilt, American Tree Sparrow, Palm Warbler... none of them super obvious ones to expect in Lewis, but I mean... hopefully we can get this thing together and add a bird or two to that county list!
