Most birders I talk to believe that European Goldfinch and Great Tit will eventually make the list, but unless there has been a recent revision to the state list, that has not happened yet. I also do not include Bobwhite in my totals, since I have heard most of the birds in the state are releases or escapes, and how would we know? I guess in some cases each birder must use his/her judgment as to whether a bird is a wild bird or not.

sin sightings of European Goldfinches and perhaps other species. Is that still the case? What species should we NOT include in our totals? Thanks. Rita Flores Wiskowski South Milwaukee

It is the start of a new birding year and, thus, it is that time again to share your birding numbers from the year just past. For those who wish to do so, the WSO will again be publishing in the Badger Birder your totals from 2018. You do not need to be a member of the WSO to participate. Any birder who meets the threshold numbers is welcomed to submit. To do so, one need only reply back channel to this message and share your totals for the following categories. And THANKS for sharing!
