Oops! Sorry to take a species away from the Durham CBC, but I didn't
have any Evening Grosbeaks. I double-checked my form and found I made
a simple transcription error -- these 27 birds were supposed to go on
the next line up on the form, American Goldfinch. I didn't find any
other errors. I don't think I've seen a single 'winter' finch this
season so far. The GBB Gulls were long overdue for the Durham count -
they've been seen every year on the adjacent Falls Lake CBC.
