[Tweeters] County checklists for whole USA

Hello Tweetsters - I have recently completed a simple little utility
that will display a checklist for any county in the U.S. at the click of
a button. (There are more than 2,000 counties in the U.S., ranging from
three for Delaware to 254 for Texas.)

The checklists are derived from eBird data.

Many folks may not find this useful for Washington State, given the
excellent county checklists available at Washington Birder (
http://www.wabirder.com/county_map.html ). The Washington Birder county
checklists include abundance codes for each species. And they are
printable on a single page, which mine are not.

Also, I know that many birders no longer use paper checklists of any
kind, because they are recording their sightings directly into the eBird
phone app.

However, some of us are still using paper for one reason or another. And
those who are going to be birding in other states may wish to have
county checklists for that. Also, this app provides a really fast way to
get an idea of the species that can be found in any county.

I did this for my own use, but then I thought maybe some others might be
interested in using it.
