Two hours and 32 minutes without traffic for the 162-mile trip.  This one I going to pass on for non-distance reasons.  I'd rather get this lifer as a county lifer, and Bahamian Mockingbirds were around my county last year.  I don't remember the dates, but I do get the rare Bird alerts.

If you can go for this one, I would definitely go for it. You never know, when one shows up in your county if you’ll be able to go for it.

So there's a place in Horry County, South Carolina, with NINE Limpkins. NINE. 9. Wow.

eta: This checklist has been confirmed by the county eBird reviewer.

Wow. There is a place near Atlanta with four Limpkins, but that is a lot farther south, and not nearly half as many birds!

Wow for those birds too! Have you been over to look for them?

The Georgia location and the Horry Co. SC birds are roughly at the same latitude. The SC location is just a little further to the north. 33°39' in SC vs. 33°29' / 33°28' in Georgia.

Sadly no.

If I had to guess:

FRS—-First reported sighting

FHC—-Final High Count

NFHC——Not final high count (he’s still reviewing photos so the number could go up)

And I thought I talked too much in my checklists 😳. Also, since when can you add photos to your checklist comments?
