Mustn't it be true that the smaller the grid size, the longer the period
must be to count the species that use the area?  Isn't it also true that
the presence of the observer is more likely to influence the counts in
smaller areas?  Has any one done the sums and the work to show that small
areas constitute a sensible grid for atlassing?  Mighn't large areas make
better use of scarce (?) birding resources?
