Records Committee Review:



Date Posted (1st round): 8 Nov 2005 5 acc, 2 not
Date Moved to 2nd Round: 25 Jan 2006 1 acc, 6 not
Date Completed: 18 Apr 2006 Not accepted


Summary: After studying the details and measurements of this excellent record the committee found that the description fits Common Yellowthroat (possibly first-year male) as well or maybe better than it fits Mourning Warbler and therefore the record could not be accepted as the states first Mourning Warbler.
