I'm in Wisconsin and I am not really seeing any birds in general so I was wondering what the chances of having live sepecimen were. What about previous nationals tests? I was wondering if they could ask about some bird that was common in Wisconsin but not included in our list? Anybody help! I am really nervous about this Saturday!!

I seriously doubt that they would include a bird not on the list. That seems faintly ridiculous for the national test.

No matter what the experiment's result, there will always be someone eager to:(a) misinterpret it(b) fake it, or (c) believe it supports his own pet theory.

I saw a hawk sitting on one of the buildings and one of my team members saw a bald eagle last time he was in Madison.

I haven't seen any birds yet... maybe that's a bad thing.
