The "Utah Birds" website has an
extensive collections of bird records.
Some of them include: documented rare
birds sighting rare bird sightings under review
undocumented sightings hotline reports hotline archives
sightings by county
|Finding information about the birds:
The website has a fairly complete set of
officially accepted rare bird sightings. Besides these "documented"
records, rare bird sightings from the hotline or a Christmas Bird Count, which
have not been submitted to the Records Committee, can be accessed by going
through the link at the bottom of the official list for each species.
The records now under review by the Records
Committee can be viewed from this website, including the photos, notes and
drawings submitted with each record. These "internet" records that have
been reviewed are accessible by links on the bottom of the "under review" page.
From the main hotline
sightings page you can read the latest "birdnet" e-mail hotline messages
both statewide and local, you can read monthly hotline reports which
review the important sighting of each month and you can read the latest
sightings in each of Utah's 29 counties.
By using the website "Search" function. You can bring up a list of the
pages on the website that contain your search words. This list will not
include the hotline archives, which can be searched "by hand" if you know the
date of a specific sighting. The latest official checklist for the state
can be printed from the
Print Center. And the "Review
Species" list which contains the species that should be reported to the
Records Committee and a list of the most
recent changes to the review
species list are available through the Records Committee page.
If you have any questions, please
