      Birders,



      The California Bird Records Committee has completed evaluation of the
      record of a Tristram's Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma tristrami) captured on
      Southeast Farallon Island, San Francisco Co., on 22 April 2006; the
      record has been accepted unanimously. This species should be placed on
      the California list between Black Storm-Petrel and Least Storm-Petrel,
      and of course is now added to the Review List as well. This record is
      also a first for the ABA area, if accepted by the ABA-CLC. Note that a
      sight record of another Tristram's Storm-Petrel at the San Juan
      Seamount, Santa Barbara Co., on 21 July 2007 is currently circulating
      through the CBRC.



      Acceptance of this species brings the California state list to 637
      species (ten of which are non-native).
