I have a question about verifying identifications on bird lists. I live on the Washington Coast. In a nearby hotspot, there are occasional mentions of long-billed curlews in birdlists. I have never seen a curlew there, but often do see whimbrels. I know it is possible there would be curlews along the coast during migration, however I think it would be useful to be able to see sometimes how identifications were made, as these two species are similar, and could be mistaken for each other. This is just an example, but is there any way to follow up with a bird list and find out how an identification was made? Thanks!
