The total for 2000 was 289 birds. As expected December did not add many birds, only two. But one, a BLACK-BACKED WAGTAIL found by David McIntyre on the San Jose CBC, was new for the county list. The other new birds was an AMERICAN REDSTART found by Mike Mammoser. For the composite list I've also changed the first record of Summer Tanager to be 11/1 for the bird Kristie Nelson found along San Francisquito Creek.

The year's list of 289 is well below the 1993-2000 average of 296 and may reflect the absence of Mike Rogers' cheerleading or, more likely, Steve Rottenborn's move to Virginia. Interestingly, although the total is down, there were four new species added to the county list in 2000 which is quite a total: ARCTIC WARBLER, GRAY CATBIRD, BLACK-BACKED WAGTAIL, and PAINTED BUNTING. Three of these were "flash" birds, they were here a moment and then gone. The Black-backed Wagtail has hung around, but only behind "No Trespassing" signs.

My candidates for the biggest misses of the year are Snowy Plover and Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrow.
