We have uploaded a new file to Shasta Birder's Yahoo Group of our annotated records of supplemental species from the Shasta County Bird Checklist. This includes Records from almost 40 years of sightings from our two Shasta County databases(AviSys & Plover), from Shasta Birders Yahoo group reports and emails, from Wintu AudubonNewsletter field trip reports, from North Amercian Birds (NAB) magazine/journal Vol. 27-#1 (1972) to Vol. 69-#3(2015), Shasta County NAB reports for all 2016 and Spring & Summer 2017, credible eBird reports, local CBC records, and from personal communications.
If you would prefer the document as an attached Excel document to an email, please let us know.
By the way, you can use the FIND function in Excel to look for your name or a bird's name to make reviewing records easier.
This project began when Ken Able mentioned it would be a shame to lose all the Shasta County records we have kept over the years, so we have completed a first edition of our collection of Shasta County records for your input, comments, and corrections. Because a record is listed does not mean it is fully substantiated. However, clearly a number of species should be moved to the regular county checklist at the next revision.
As we receive corrections and additions to the list we will upload new versions (this is called version 1) until we have a more final document.
