BRC Round 8 Accepted Records, July 2015

Note: Rare bird reports and submissions, along with documentation and with photographs where available, are circulated to all committee members for written response in advance. During the subsequent conference call, and after all written responses have been circulated, each submission is discussed in detail. Recommendations are made by consensus.

A total of 10 submissions involving 9 species were reviewed through written submissions for Round 8.  However, because of busy field seasons BRC members did not schedule a conference call to discuss this set of records. The accepted records shown here were unanimously accepted by committee members.

A full account of all the decisions made by the committee, including records not accepted, will be published in an upcoming issue of our journal British Columbia Birds.

 The following species were accepted to the Main Provincial List:
