      Birders,



      The CBRC has recently completed review of records of three species
      potentially new to the California list, and has accepted them all
      unanimously. These are:



      Common Rosefinch (Carpodacus erythrinus) on Southeast Farallon Island 23
      Sep 2007 (CBRC #2007-207). Placed on the list between Pine Grosbeak and
      Purple Finch.



      Swallow-tailed Kite (Elanoides forficatus) near Graton SON 4 Oct 2007
      (CBRC #2007-217). Although "kite" taxonomy is in flux, this species is
      currently placed between Osprey and White-tailed Kite on the California
      list.



      Eurasian Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) at Marin Headlands MRN 23 Oct 2007
      (CBRC #2007-222). Placed on list between Crested Caracara and American
      Kestrel.



      The acceptance of these three species brings the California state list
      total to 640 species (including 10 non-native species).
