Sunday iNaturalist update (5 pm)

Great response going on here! Thanks so much!
Some that we had disappeared. A couple have attempts at photos (really appreciate all efforts), but I couldn't quite tell if the bird in question was captured, so have sent out the links for a second opinion. And a couple that were supposed to be added haven't quite appeared yet. Please check to see if your bird is there. Here's the link:
Again please let me know offline if my eyes were crossed by the time I reached yours. Also I suspect people are still out looking and photographing/recording so I'll do another update around 8 pm.
