Silcock and Jorgensen, "Winter Field Report, Dec. 1998–Feb. 1999" in Nebraska Bird Review (March 1999) 67(1).
First we want to correct a rather obvious error in the Summer Field Report. We reported 3 pairs of Cordilleran Flycatchers at Neale Woods at the eastern edge of the state, which would be a remarkable range expansion. These birds were actually in Monroe Canyon, Sioux Co, where they were supposed to be. Another error involved 5 Brewer's Sparrows we said were in Sioux Co; these were actually Brewer's Blackbirds.
Several contributors now report to us by email. We urge observers to forward their email addresses; if we have questions on their reports, communication would be easy! Reports and comments can be submitted to Ross Silcock by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We should note here that this Seasonal Report contains a few unverified observations as well as documented observations; we have generally indicated that reports are unverified if the report is of some significance. We submit documentation we receive to the Records Committee; observers are urged to provide details on unusual birds along with their reports.
Read on and enjoy. (If you don't enjoy, please forward your constructive criticism!)
