      5 January 2011 - Recently the Mendocino County Bird Review Committee
      reviewed and accepted (6:0 vote) a large batch of old records and
      established credible first and second records. A "record" is considered one
      individual bird, so a "flock" consists of several individual "records" and
      may have contained the 1st & 2nd MEN record. Older records on file with
      lacking or minimal support may exist. The MCBRC does NOT review species on
      the current CBRC "Species Review List".



      I will, over the next couple of weeks, continue to post all of those records
      in groups of 10 species at a time..and here is a continuation of those.
      All records have what we consider solid documentation of place, date,
      observer, and observation notes/photos or there is a specimen housed at some
      museum or collection. Here are the next ten species reviewed:

        Miner Hole road, Garcia river area, so that would be the first county record
        as well.
