Other changes and corrections   (Top of page)
Jan 30, 2007:

I made 2 corrections to species names on the list.   I corrected the French name for Boreal Owl from Chouette de Tangmalm to Nyctale de Tangmalm and changed Three-toed Woodpecker to American Three-toed Woodpecker.

Jan 19, 2007:

I've finally managed to go through all of the past Winter Lists (again) to try and find any other errors I might have made when compiling all the data from past years (if you're wondering what I'm talking about, see the comments at bottom of this page for more info). Here are the corrections I made

2005/2006:    Replaced American Bittern with Great Egret
2004/2005:    Replaced Pied-billed Grebe with Red-necked Grebe
2003/2004:    Replaced Pied-billed Grebe with Red-necked Grebe
1999/2000:    Replaced Yellow-throated Warbler with Pine Warbler
1999/2000:    Replaced Black-headed Grosbeak with Rose-breasted Grosbeak
1998/1999:    Added Black-headed Grosbeak

Also changed the Yearly Total to 155 and the Cumulative Total to 184 for 1998/1999 and changed the "Additions to the Cumulative Winter List" page by moving the Black-headed Grosbeak from the 1999/2000 year to the 1998/1999 year.

Jan 3, 2007:

I also had mistakenly indicated that Pied-billed Grebe was observed during the 2004/2005 and 2003/2004 winter periods but was missing Red-necked Grebe for those 2 winter periods.  Since Red-necked Grebe should occur every winter, I suspected that I had accidentally switched the two.  I checked Stu's past pages and saw that it was indeed Red-necked Grebe, not Pied-billed Grebe, that had been seen both of those winters.

I'm now in the process of reviewing the data and hope to have verified all the data and made the necessary corrections in the near future (I'll indicate it here when I've finished the verification)

Prior to Jan 3, 2007:
I made a correction to the data for 2005/2006.  Don Gibson informed me that I had forgotten to include Great Egret on the 2005/2006 Winter List.  I checked the list and saw that I had included American Bittern on the 2005/2006 list; however, I didn't remember one being reported.  I checked Stuart Tingley's 2005/2006 Winter List page and sure enough, there was a Great Egret and no American Bittern so I made the correction.
