Annual reports were compiled for 30 years. The reporting began 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 from 2011 – 2015.

The latest format 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 were available for statewide, county, and major region Big Days.
