Daniel D. Gibson, Steven C. Heinl, and Theodore G. Tobish, Jr.
ABSTRACT: During the five years (2003–2007) since the last report of the Alaska Checklist Committee 21 species or subspecies have been added to the Alaska list, two subspecies have been raised to species status, and one subspecies has been deleted, resulting in a net total of 485 species and 115 additional subspecies of birds we maintain at the beginning of 2008 as occurring or having occurred naturally in Alaska.
