I remember a book by one of the top birders in which he wrote that if he looked at his field notes when he was beginning birding it had many birds that would have been state records!! He probably also talked about later errors also but I remember the above. Does anyone remember the book?

In my humble opinion, there are only two groups of birders that never make identification mistakes: birders who never make identifications and pathological liars. All the rest of us do our best.
