      The California Bird Records Committee has unanimously accepted the
      record of an Eastern Whip-poor-will (Caprimulgus vociferus) from Point
      Loma, San Diego County 14 November 1970; this bird was netted and
      photographed, and also compared directly to specimens in the San Diego
      Natural History Museum before being released. See California Birds
      2:37-40, 1971, available here:
      http://elibrary.unm.edu/sora/wb/v02n01/p0037-p0040.pdf



      This species is added to the checklist between Buff-collared Nightjar
      and Mexican Whip-poor-will with a "P" symbol [photograph, no specimen ]
      and is also added to the Review List. Acceptance brings the current
      California state list to 644 species.
