I'm not going to confess which birds I haven't seen (except that now I've
seen Gound Cuckoo-Shrikes), in any case I grumble enough at the mention of
certain species for people to guess which my particular bug-bears are.

However I was thinking that for those, like me, who don't make an effort to
keep a year-list the proportion of birds on one's life list that you've seen
only once must be quite large. Again, I'm not going to confess what this is
with mine.
