Does anyone know the Master of Stats personally?

If so, please give him a nudge to update this thread.

Dear Bush Baptist and all birders,

Kindly note that Ferdelance is currently unable to continue as "Master of Stats", due to a very heavy work load. Please accept his sincere apologies for the backlog on this topic.

It is, however, my pleasure to announce that Albert offered to help out as "Master of Stats" until Ferdelance is able to spend time on the forums again.

Thank you ever so much Albert! :gflower:
