2012 Nevada Bird Records Committee Report

Martin Meyers


This report covers the 99 records reviewed by the Nevada Bird Records Committee in 2012, of which 87 were endorsed. These 99 records cover sightings from 1 June 1954 through 27 August 2012. One species is added to the Nevada list (and to the committee’s review list): the Red-bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus). Two species are removed from the review list because of the high number of records or regularity of occurrence. The Nevada state list now stands at 489 species, of which 164 are currently on the review list.
