I believe that Rafeal Fennimore is approaching a King Co. record. And it looks like 3 birders, and maybe more may exceed 350 for the state this year. For those of us that have tried state big years “Awsome numbers”.
Now the jerk birder in me would love to put out for discussion. Should we count escapees as well as birds that have been considered non countable in the state. Mandarin Duck, and Monk Parakeet for example. Someone could put Indian Peafowl on their Ebird list and it would count.
I realize it’s each individuals list to put any bird on that they want.
But when it comes to big day/ big year competitions? Shouldn’t the competitors be following the same set of rules. I’m really interested in what other’s have to say about this topic.
I just fell off my soapbox and my foot really hurts.
