Depending on the local geography and observers, doesn't that apply just the same to visible recording as well?

I'll put in a bold prediction of a Pechora on Foula over the weekend. Looks like north-westerlies originating from the White Sea area.

As a WP birder based in Poland, i'd not bother with Scilly at all and would stick with Corvo (you'll get more there in one trip than ten trips to Scilly). The UK is a must visit destination for...

Yes, i thought of that this morning with a clearer head! But then i thought, what about if this colony has recently received an influx of birds from the other (declining) colonies. I guess they know...

I think that's about the size of it. Basically, the observers have resubmitted it in the light of new knowledge. The identification was never in doubt so it didn't really need to go through BBRC...

Without looking at it, i would imagine that the biggest issue would be the Mexican border. How different would a Nearctic list be to the ABA list?
