Records Committee Review:



Date Posted (1st round): 7 Sep 2006 0 acc, 7 not
Date Completed: 1 Dec 2006 Not accepted

Summary: Because a first winter female Mourning Warbler is a very difficult ID and can easily be confused with a MacGillivray's Warbler, an immature Common Yellowthroat or even a bright Orange-crowned Warbler, this record, though very well done, was not deemed sufficient for a first state record.
