Below: The Rarity Roundup comes through with one of the most precisely executed chases in Maryland rarities. This rare White-winged Dove was found by Debbie Terry, Bob Ringler, and Scott Housten, and chased by most of the Rarity Roundup participants within minutes. The communications network was so fast that as the Assateague parties left the island, we were in a caravan of nine cars. This is a classic example of the powerful effects of modern technology on birding. This is only the third Worcester Co. record and about Maryland's 10th record since our first in 1970. It was a county bird for even Mark Hoffman. Jim Stasz found and photographed his own at Truitt's Landing in August 2008.
