Just a few thoughts on how we can come up with a formula to
pick a National winner in future twitchathons.
If a team has a possible list of 300 from its
chosen area (this does not have to be a complete State list) and gets a score of
270 they would have got 90% giving them a score of 90. If this formula is
used and all teams nominate an area and have a list of possibles then a
national winner can be selected on a percentage of birds twitched.

To a man ornithologists are tall, slender, and
that they can stand motionless for hours, imitating kindly
trees, as they watch for birds.
