Records Committee Review:

  Date Posted


1st round: 25 Sep 2016 2 acc, 7 not
2nd round: 20 Nov 2016 2 acc, 7 not
Completed: 26 Jan 2017 Not Accepted


Summary:  Despite the reference to a clean white throat, the lack of photos, the lack of optical equipment and no previous experience with sapsuckers, caused concerns that a Red-naped Sapsucker couldn't be credibly eliminated.
