Hi all,

The “countability” of this recent Neah Bay Eurasian Tree Sparrow has come up in a few private communications to me. While I can’t say with certainty on how the WBRC will rule on this record, I have a pretty good hunch. California and Oregon have two records each and none of them have been accepted by their BRC’s. The likelihood that this Eurasian Tree Sparrow arrived to Neah Bay without “ship assistance” is close to zero.

So, should you crank up the chase wagon and come give it a look see? Sure, why not, it is a handsome-looking bird. And, plus it is in Neah Bay in Fall and most of us now know what that means. Can you count it? It is your list!

Cheers and good birding,

Brad Waggoner
