      Birders,



      The record of a Parkinson's Petrel (Procellaria parkinsoni) which was
      seen and photographed off Pt. Reyes MRN on 01 October 2005 (CBRC
      #2005-129) was unanimously accepted by the California Bird Records
      Committee. Acceptance of this record adds another species to the
      California bird species list, which now stands at 632. This species,
      the first of its genus to be verified for California, is placed on the
      California checklist between Bulwer's Petrel and Streaked Shearwater.
      Note that some authorities, including the recently published "Birds of
      the World: Recommended English Names," use the name "Black Petrel"
      rather than "Parkinson's Petrel" for this species.
