Glad you gave that a try. It always works well. If you want to find even MORE reports for species you have not seen this year, you can set up to receive “Needs” alerts for birds in the current year by going to the Explore Section and licking “Alerts”. That way, you will be alerted about birds that were not photographed.
Another interesting thing to do is visit the Explore section, scroll down and click on “Target Species”. Set your parameters for whatever you need.

So I used Bill Pelletier's powerful method (posted on May 26), which I have bookmarked as "Explore Species Photographed". With the Location as Santa Clara, and sorting for Newest First, I found that on July 25 Carol Ann Krug Graves photographed a female Wood Duck at Vasona Lake County Park.
