      15 December 2009 - The Mendocino County Bird Records Committee completed the
      review of Canada Warbler records and Prairie Warbler records. The 13
      September 2008 observation by Jerry White, and also seen later in the day by
      Karen Havlena, was ACCEPTED as the county's first record. The 14 September
      2008 observation along the Skunk railroad tracks near Fort Bragg, as found
      by Rob Fowler and also seen by Karen Havlena, was ACCEPTED as the second
      county record. A third sighting by Karen Havlena on 18 September 2008
      near Cottoneva Creek was also reviewed and accepted in case one of the other
      CAWA reviews was not accepted (MCBRC reviews first and second county
      records, and initial breeding records).



      Also reviewed were Prairie Warbler records. A 1-2 June 1985 records of a
      singing male along Branscomb Road, as found by John Sterling and later seen
      by Jerry White, Nikki White, and Jim Matzinger, was ACCEPTED as the county's
      first record. Dorothy Tobkin's sighting of an immature male on 24 August
      2006 at Glass Beach, fort Bragg, was ACCEPTED as the county's second record.
      Rich Trissel's 5 October 2008 observation of a male in the willows along the
      Gualala River was reviewed and accepted in case one of the previous
      observations was not accepted.



      Of note: if you observe a species that seems rare or new to Mendocino
      County, please document as well as possible with good notes, drawings,
      photos, etc. as this information is critical for confirmation. Good
      birding.
