Nevada Bird Records Committee Report for 2013
ABSTRACT: This report covers the 115 records reviewed by the Nevada Bird Records Committee in 2013, of which 105 were endorsed. These 115 records cover sightings from 15 August 1954 through 15 September 2013. Four species are added to the Nevada list as a result of endorsed first state records, the Common Crane (Grus grus), Slaty-backed Gull (Larus schistisagus), Barred Owl (Strix varia), and Rufous-backed Robin (Turdus rufopalliatus). Also, one species is added as a result of the taxonomic split of the Sage Sparrow. Two species are removed from the Nevada list, the Allen’s Hummingbird (Selasphorus sasin) and Pine Warbler (Setophaga pinus). The Nevada state list now stands at 492 species, of which 156 are currently on the review list.
