      10 January 2011 - Correction .G-t GRACKLE (not blackbird). Further
      correction .. dates for G-c Rosy-Finch. (Thanks to Jack Booth).



      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 have, over the last few weeks, posted all of those records in groups of
      10 species at a time..and here is a continuation (last ones) 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 and final ten species reviewed:
