Records Committee Review:



Date Posted (1st round): 18 Apr 2005 6 acc, 1 not
Date Moved to 2nd Round: 6 Jun 2005 7 acc
Date Completed: 5 Aug 2005 Accepted


Summary: Because this sighting was much earlier than other sightings of this species in Utah, the record was sent to a second round to make sure the record eliminated other possible warblers, especially the Orange-crowned Warbler. After research of other sightings of Black-throated Blue Warblers in this area of the country the date thought to be possible, though remarkable and the description adequately eliminated other species.
