    So other than presumably Smith’s Longspur, has Nicole got any other year list targets in the next two weeks ?

    ABA Big Year 2018

    La Sagra’s Flycatcher in Florida plus the 3 species mentioned in post 84- so lots for Nicole to chase when she returns. Would still need 12-15 to get to the total of John W, which seems a big ask?

    Am I right in thinking that the most gettable ones left for Nicole are Smiths Longspur, American Flamingo and Barnacle Goose ? Any chance of her getting near Olaf’s 778 by the end of the year?

    Nicole seems to be about to get the third highest continental ABA total but is about 10 short from Hawaii compared to previous big years ? Is she intending on going back ?

    How about the Cuban Vireo ? Also it looks like it was a bad decision of Olaf not to go to Alaska in May - (Smew, PT Snipe, Com Sand and LTStint)

    ABA Big Year 2016

    New blog post up from Olaf- his numbers still seem awry? 772+4 ? He hasn't seemed to have added the la Sagres Flycatcher into the main total from previous blog posts and am guessing has added in the spot-billed duck into the +4 ? He's on his way to Washington...
