Let me try to top that for Van. Monday I was really pleased to find a Nelson’s Sparrow at Ft. De Soto in St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida. So I checked out the other records for NESP in Pinellas on eBird. First one?
182 Nelson's Sparrow 1 4 Jan 1973 Van Truan
Now this is a county with a county list of 424 going all the way back to an 1880 record for Brown-headed Nuthatch followed by:
422 Kentucky Warbler X 6 Apr 1886 Frank Chapman Data
Gee, I wonder what eBird app Frank Chapman used? Well, I’m not done with Van, right before Nelson’s Sparrow is this—
183 Northern Pintail 1 3 Jan 1973 Van Truan
Two first county records for Van in Pinellas County, FL.

That's an amazing, county record for Colorado, an inland state, rivaling some of those west coast county records.
