Subject: [texbirds] Harris Harlequin actually was Mandarin Duck
Nina Rach made a typo and entered Harlequin Duck instead of Mandarin Duck. As Harris County ebird reviewer I blocked it and sent her a note and she apologized and corrected it. Unfortunately, as ebird alert is instantaneous, folks get an immediate rarity email . Due to the large volume of Harris County ebirders in this 4.5 million person county unfortunately I would say about once a month in Harris County we get a report entered incorrectly. Thus some caution is needed before immediately following up on exceedingly rare birds. John BernerThe Berners
