The list says "Screech owls" but doesn't give a specific species. Should I submit a question to clarify?

Does "sheet protectors, lamination, tabs and labels are permitted in both the binder and field buide" mean we can tape stuff or add post-it notes into the field guide for information?

Can the "one unmodified and unannotated copy of either the 2020 National Bird List or a 2020 Official State Bird List" be in a sheet protector?

Yeah.
This applies to most things that say "of any source" in the rules. (at least we've been doing it in Fossils for some time now and no one has stopped us)

Also, the scientific name for the European Starling has a typo (should be Sturnus, not Sternus).

Anyone else find it extremely weird that some birds on the list are given scientific names and others not?

Ya it makes it feel a bit rushed and incomplete honestly. Like the people who made the list were like “oh shoot we have to do this” and then gave up after half of the work was done.

Hopefully, this is not the final copy. (It's still early in the season anyway.)

I'd assume so. For herp, our copy of the list was in a sheet protector and we saw some teams at competitions use sheet protectors for the list as well. As long as it's just the the list in the protector without anything else.

2020 Events: Orni, WIDI, PPP :P
