Damp Squib?

The weather seems to be reflecting the Birding scene at the moment. Could this go down as the quietest Spring on record for Rare Birds? Still time though...

I have a passion for US birding and have added the ABA blog and a birders (John Vanderpoel) Big Year 2011 blog (summer plumaged GREAT KNOT today!) to my Blog list. My friend Sandy Komito holds the record with an amazing 748 species!!!
Here he is (incredibly) with John in Anchorage 2 days ago!

Sandy on the right

I can't see that ever being beaten as he did it in an El Nino year and had access to Attu which as far as I'm aware no longer exists...access that is...not Attu!
