There were upwards of 15 other birders there trying to twitch the bird, although my birder math gets shaky when there are just five pairs of binoculars spread among a group that size. They were often huddled and chatty, which I suspect is not the most efficient method for finding a shy and easily overlooked bird like the Black-backed Woodpecker. Listen to me, all up on my high horse, ha ha.
