The WRBC records may be the best source on the rare bird sightings. Of course not everything gets reported.

Subject: [Tweeters] Where can I find bird records for Pierce County?
Hello fellow Tweeters!
I was wondering if anyone knows who keeps track of the records of rare birds for Pierce County? And I was also wondering if I could gain access to that information? I'm simply curious about various historical rare bird records in the county, particularly those not reported on ebird. I know there is a checklist of birds of Pierce County, and though a fantastic tool, this doesn't tell me things such as date, location, how long the bird remained, and so on. Some birds, such as Garganey, Bar-tailed Godwit, and White-winged Dove have been recorded in the county but, as I mentioned, lack ebird records, so there's no info here on the matter. Not sure if all that info is available online or not, I can't find it. Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!
