Many of us prefer to share birds we see. When something unusual is found during the count, we call or text others around us to share the sighting immed. If sharing is your ideal way to bird, then you may be disappointed to hear about a bird too late to enjoy it. Holding up news of a "write-in" til the countdown feels selfish and competitive to me. Some teams complete their sector before the day is done and would be free to chase a nearby bird.
