And here are the Continental ABA lists. I had to correct a mistake I'd made in the McQuades' lists; they have Black-headed, not Black-tailed Gull. Oops...

The other reason is that it isn’t fair from both sides. Birders will make an effort (time & money) to clean up Thayer’s Gull (for example), but they wouldn’t have gone to Idaho to pick up the...

Mysticete is correct. Most Big Year birders have at least one heard-only owl on their list.

That being said, John picked up Purple Sandpiper and Dovekie, so he's unofficially tied the Big Year...

The McQuades officially moved into 3rd place for the Lower 48, ten behind John and twelve behind Olaf's record. This could get interesting.

Updated lists for all five!
I'm missing one from the McQuade's eBird number, but we'll get that figured out.
