I read that as meaning Dusky and Naumann's should be lumped. Is that correct?

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...

That was a lot of what i based my thinking on. Plus a few waders too, the distribution of Grey-tailed Tattler is a beauty! The steppes of Kazakhstan are far more WP than eastern, and then there is a...

I'll leave the Americas up to others to discuss i think! Perhaps doing it by native American tribal boundaries would be a better approximation than modern political borders!?

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?

Why are the Urals better than the Yenisei? Why not include most of Kazakhstan and the lowlands of the other 'stans? I've had this debate with birders who start off saying its total rubbish, then when...

The eastern boundary is better off being the Yenisei river in my view, and then down along the foothills of the major Asian mountain ranges and into Iran. Therefore including most of Central Asia...

Garry Taylor got 287 in Yorkshire last year. We couldn't find a higher total, so reckon that's probably the UK county year list record.

I'm no expert on Azerbaijan birds, but i would imagine that, being migrants, Grey-necked Bunting, Bimaculated Lark and Pale Rock Sparrow would all have left for the winter by then.

Have the best of both Worlds. Count Pheasant on your British list because everyone else does, but wait until you see a genuine wild bird in Asia before counting it on your World list.

I don't think so. I think they were making reference to the fact they saw that the bird had been reported. Hence the word "bummer".
