Records Committee Review:



Date Posted (1st round): 7 Sep 2006 6 acc, 1 not
Date Moved to 2nd Round: 1 Dec 2006 5 acc, 2 not
Date Completed: 2 Jan 2007 Accepted


Summary: Because of the very early date for this species to show up here and the fact that a juvenile has never been seen in the western US before,  this record was subjected to a high degree of scrutiny, but eventually passed with only slight reservation.
