During the seven years, 1966-1972, of 42 established routes, an average of 36 Breeding Bird Surveys have been accepted from Alabama (high – 40 in 1966, low – 31 in 1968). Usually, failure to run a route has been due to shortage of qualified observers in remote parts of the state, but most aggravating are those people who fail to run a route ~ fail to say anything about it. A few routes have been run and rejected due to late or early start, late finish or a late date.
