Some of these lists have been from California :) This has been going on for 
quite some time and I keep thinking we have rarities to chase, but no such luck.

 When I first saw one of these lists I thought someone was playing games, and 
I got annoyed. But after seeing several lists from different observers listing 
birds from various parts of the world but nominally all observed in Stewart 
Park, it is clear to me that all these lists are mislabeled due to the same 
innocent error which more likely due to some glitch in the system than to 
something the observer has done. Until the folks at eBird figure out why this 
happens and fix the problem, I see no point in getting mad. Instead, it’s fun 
to try to figure out where in the world the list was actually made, based on 
the ranges of the different species. I recognized several bird names from Costa 
Rica on one list, and by going back to the list after the location was 
corrected, I found out I was correct. We should get prizes for how close our 
guesses are.

sBird lists the New Zealand bird reports as originating from Stewart Park! 
There were also erroneous Osprey sightings a few weeks ago.

Why are we getting these weird e bird reports from Tompkins county that have 
birds that aren’t found here?  It makes a mockery of e bird reports.
