I wouldn't mind a copy of the checklist (the one which gives approximate numbers of the waterfowl) if you have time to send it.

Is this the earliest record of Blackcaps, or do they winter regularly?

I will see what I can do.

These areas are ones that nearly always seem to have wintering birds. It is always worth checking out these areas, or ones that have a large amount of Mahonia(the border by Hanover playground is another regular site.)
