Ceylon's post inspired me to make a thread updated weekly based on the #abarare blog on the ABA site. Some people may not follow the ABA Blogs, or may not know about them, so this thread will keep you all updated.
This thread will just consist of photos of the birds (none of them mine, unfortunately) with their name, date, and location, followed by a link to the #ABArare blog's post, where you can read more about it.

This week's birds featured on the #ABArare blog:

Little Egret, 7/7/12, Montreal, QC: http://blog.aba.org/...t-quebec-1.html

It's likely. Godwits aren't usually one-day wonders like the Fork-tailed Flycatchers. Check eBird to see recent reports.
