The 32nd Report of the California Bird Records Committee: 2006 Records
Matthew T. Heindel and Kimball L. Garrett
ABSTRACT: The California Bird Records Committee reached decisions on 264 records involving 83 species evaluated during 2006, endorsing 225 of them. New to California were Ross’s Gull (Rhodostethia rosea) and the Taiga Flycatcher (Ficedula albicilla); the Little Shearwater (Puffinus assimilis) was removed from the state list. Adjusted for these changes, California’s bird list stands at 633 species, ten of which are non-native; three additional species recently accepted will be covered in the next report.
