2011 Nevada Bird Records Committee Report
Martin Meyers

ABSTRACT: This report covers the 115 records reviewed by the Nevada Bird Records Committee in 2011, of which 110 were endorsed. These 115 records cover sightings from 24 October 1971 through 26 November 2011, 37 in 2011, 20 antedating the formation of the committee in 1994. Three species are added to the Nevada list (and to the committee’s review list): the Iceland Gull (Larus glaucoides), Winter Wren (Troglodytes hiemalis), and Sedge Wren (Cistothorus platensis). The Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet (Camptostoma imberbe) is removed from the Nevada list (and review list) because evidence to substantiate the record is insufficient. Ten species are removed from the review list because of the number of records or regularity of occurrence. The Nevada state list now stands at 488 species, of which 167 are on the review list.
