Nevada Bird Records Committee Report for 2019–2020
Jeanne Tinsman and Martin Meyers
ABSTRACT: In 2019 and 2020, the Nevada Bird Records Committee reviewed 79 reports from the period 4 November 1955 to 23 October 2020. Seventy of them were endorsed. It added three species to the state checklist, the Field Sparrow (Spizella pusilla), Mexican Duck (Anas diazi), and Pine Warbler (Setophaga pinus). Two of those (the Field Sparrow and Pine Warbler) were added to the review list. The Mexican Duck was elevated from subspecies to species status, and it, along with six other species, were removed from the review list. We also continued reviewing records that precede the committee’s establishment in 1994.
