This is the 30th year that a report of this nature has been compiled and published. The report was begun in 1986
by Harvey Mudd, was taken on by Phil Davis in the early 1990s, and then was passed on to Norm Saunders with the 2001 List Report. After Norm's decade or so of service, Russ Ruffing assumed the reins beginning with the 2011 Report.
This year's report is the fifth installment of the current format that began in 2011 -- that is, a comprehensive report that includes a summary of the birding year for the state as a whole, plus one for each county and the District of Columbia. This report also includes all of the current Big Day data that is available for statewide, county, and major region Big Days.
