Subject: [obol] Next Oregon Bird - fun survey
It’s time for the Occasional Survey of Oregon Birders (O-SOB, for the rarities we miss). We last predicted the next bird for the Oregon list in 2017. Since 2016 Oregon has added:

2017: Eurasian Skylark

2018: Zone-tailed Hawk, Nazca Booby, Eastern Bluebird

2019: Red-footed Booby, Dusky Thrush (so far)

Here’s how you vote. Give a “5” to the MOST likely bird to next be found in Oregon from the list below (You can add a species if you want to). Give a “4” to the next most likely, down to “1”. You get only those five weighted votes. No funky numbers or duplicate numbers.

Send me your votes by November 15 and I’ll tally and post the results. Feel free to include your reasons and I’ll post a selection.

Let me know if I have included something on this list for which the OBRC has either (a) accepted a record or (b) has a record in circulation. As far as I know it’s clean for accepted records, but I could have missed something.
