  15. Ebird Rare Sightings

    Hi all, I have recently become interested in the meaning/variation of the words/symbols (ie. ***MEGA) put before unusual birds. Here in Colorado people don't seem to do it very much, but on the East Coast it is common. I recently saw a report of a Summer Tanager. The person said it was "***Very Rare", while an observation from a few miles away was said to be "**Rare". Does anyone have some rough guidelines as to the significance of these at the beginning of checklists? I have been hesitant to write such things on my rare bird reports thus far. Also, is a MEGA a first state record or something that has been recorded 2-4 times? Help is appreciated - thanks.
