Nevada Bird Records Committee Report for 2016
Jeanne Tinsman and Martin Meyers

ABSTRACT: In 2016, the Nevada Bird Records Committee (NBRC) reviewed 86 reports from the period 27 November 1965–28 October 2016; 76 were endorsed. One new species was added to the Nevada list following endorsement of the first state record, the White-rumped Sandpiper (Calidris fuscicollis). The state list also grew by an additional species as a result of the split of the Western Scrub-Jay (formerly Aphelocoma californica) since both the resulting California Scrub-Jay (A. californica) and Woodhouse’s Scrub-Jay (A. woodhouseii) are regular breeding species in Nevada. The Nevada state list stands at 488 species, of which 141 are currently on the review list.
