Hi all
I think Dave Torr hit the nail on the head - given the low numbers of
birders, and the vastness of the continent, it's much more likely to be a
case of vagrants turning up in many places, but not being found. Ask any UK
birder how many more rarities are being found there nowadays compared to say
20 years ago - due to a large increase in the numbers of birders and their
mobility. A statistician could have a field day (applying some basic
assumptions) about the odds of vagrants being found.
