CBRC Review species


Thomas Benson
 

Hello California birders,

 

This past month has certainly been an impressive one for vagrants in California, with multiple California Bird Records Committee (CBRC) review species being found and seen just since last Friday. As you may know the CBRC reviews and archives documentation of all review species that occur in the state, providing a permanent record of written details and analysis, photos, videos, and audio recordings associated with each sighting. This archive, however, cannot exist with your input. We therefore request that observers of CBRC review species please submit documentation to the secretary at the email address below. A list of recent sightings for which we are requesting documentation is included below. If you have not previously submitted documentation or photos, guidelines for doing so can be found on the CBRC website. Thank you.
