The 36th Annual Report of the California Bird Records Committee: 2010 Records
Oscar Johnson, Brian L. Sullivan, and Guy McCaskie
ABSTRACT: The California Bird Records Committee reached decisions on 244 individuals of 79 species and two species pairs documented since the 35th report (Pyle et al. 2011a), endorsing 170 of them. The Eastern Whip-poor-will (Antrostomus vociferus) was added to the California state list, bringing the total accepted to 644 species, 10 of which are non-native. Notable records of the Ivory Gull (Pagophila eburnea), Black-tailed Gull (Larus crassirostris), and Great-winged Petrel (Pterodroma macroptera) are detailed in this report. At its 2012 annual meeting, the committee removed the Trumpeter Swan (Cygnus buccinator) and Yellow-throated Warbler (Setophaga dominica) from its review list.
