CBRC adds Bluethroat to California state list
The California Bird Records Committee has unanimously endorsed record
#2008-116 of a Bluethroat, Luscinia svecica, present on San Clemente I.,
Los Angeles Co. 14-18 September 2008.
This adds a new species to the California list, which now stands at 641
species (631 native). Bluethroat should be placed on the state
checklist at the beginning of the family Turdidae, immediately before
Red-flanked Bluetail. It is, of course, also added to the CBRC review
