Re: CBRC news - Wood Sandpiper accepted to California state list
I'm curious about the list quantity of 636. The 10 Apr 2007 CBRC
list in WFO stands at 634 with the addition of Taiga Flycatcher and
Ross's Gull. Since then you have posted Lesser Frigatebird and
Townsend's Shearwater (12 Nov 2007)which should make the count 636.
With today's post of Wood Sandpiper that should bring the total to
637. Did something drop off?

Yes, one species did "drop off" the list: Little Shearwater was removed
from the California list after re-review. Hence, the total is 636. But
expect that to go up soon...
