When we started the Texas Century Club there were over 40 counties in Texas with no records in eBird, and many had almost no records. [[Glasscock County]] used to be the poster child for a county that was really out of the way. Miles from a major highways and not really on the way to anywhere with only 9,000 residents it sat on the edge of the Edwards Plateau with no records for the longest time. No records until a Century Cluber went there because we knew so little. Now there are more than 140 species reported for Glasscock County.
