I saw the following 527 species primarily during year-long birding in Georgia and
Florida, and on special trips to the following states:  Alaska (9 days in May/June),
Wyoming (1 week in June), Colorado/Utah (2 days June + 3 days July), Arizona (8 days July),
Texas (6 days December).  Those 8 states accounted for 522 species; the remaining 5 were
seen, one each, on short visits to:  North Carolina, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and
