    Jeff,

    Just as an FYI: I noticed that the Louisiana checklist under the latest AOS tax update had four species that aren't on the state list per our records committee. Since you're using Avibase for your base data, I contacted Denis Lepage there and he went through his notes on our checklist to identify the discrepancies. Three of the four were easy calls (no documented sightings) and the fourth is our perennial bete noir, Monk Parakeet, which the committee refuses repeatedly to add to the list, about which at the very least reasonable people can disagree.

    I mention this to let other users know that Denis was very responsive (with a day) about checking the discrepancies and promises to update the database on the three "cleared" discrepancies soon. So those users who've seen other problems may wish to contact him directly via the Avibase error-reporting link on their site with the missing/errant listings and any info they may have on them.

    Kevin
