And (above, today) White-browed Robins (Poecilodryas superciliosa) seldom fail to turn up for a tick.
Now the boring points about the foregoing. In nicely rounded numbers, alltime Tyto list grew to 240 in 2010.
My total species sighted in 2010: 170. December count: 100. Monthly counts well down on those for previous five years. A wet, greyish year.
So, how long will it now take to see all 240 birds on the list? Assuming someone cares, my answer: never! Too many (10-20) rare/odd sightings. 210 in three years would be my target.
But only if La Nina clears off soon. Please ...
