      Subject: [CALBIRDS] News from the California Bird Records Committee

      California Birders:

      The California Bird Records Committee held its annual meeting
      in Pacifica Friday evening, 18 January, and in San Jose all
      day Saturday, 19 January.

      Some items that may be of interest to California birders

      (1) Outgoing members Robb Hamilton, Michael Patten, and Peter
      Pyle have been replaced by Luke Cole, Michael Rogers, and Mike
      San Miguel [all outgoing members must sit off the committee for
      at least one year before being eligible for re-relection]. We
      particularly welcome Luke, who will serve on the CBRC for the
      first time. Guy McCaskie was re-elected as CBRC Secretary, Dick
      Erickson was re-elected as Chair, and Kimball Garrett was
      re-elected as Vice-Chair.

      (2) The Field List of California Birds (now out of stock) will
      be reprinted early this year, with all applicable updates and

      (3) Review list changes:

      There were no additions to the review list, but the CBRC
      is keeping a close watch on the status of several species
      (including Cape May Warbler, Bay-breasted Warbler, and Rusty
      Blackbird). However, the following species pairs --
      Masked/Nazca Booby and White/Black-backed Wagtail -- have been
      added to the review list; in other words, records of birds
      identified to the level those species pairs, but not to one
      or the other of the component species, will be reviewed by
      The Committee. {The Committee will also add Hawaiian/Galapagos
      Petrel to the review list should the AOU go forward with the
      proposed split of those taxa.]

      Reddish Egret has been removed from the Review List; records
      after 2001 will not be reviewed.

      (4) Blue Mockingbird, Melanotis caerulescens, has been placed on
      the Supplemental List (along with Falcated Duck, Crested Caracara,
      Gray Silky-Flycatcher, and Oriental Greenfinch). These are species
      where the correct identification has been accepted by The Committee,
      but which are not accepted to the main list because of questions
      about natural occurrence; however, the possibility of natural
      occurrence is considered high enough that a majority of CBRC members
      have voted to place them on this special list.

      The minutes of the CBRC annual meeting will eventually be posted on
      the CBRC web site: www.wfo-cbrc.org
