ARCC had not received a report on the Stamford sighting of a Black-backed Oriole in time for the 2018 meeting. The report from that meeting was published in the most recent Conn Warbler magazine.
We have since received a report and it will be under consideration for our 2019 meeting. The PA committee contacted me before its recent meeting to see where things stood with us, but we had nothing to add at that time. We will have the full PA and MA files at our disposal when we consider the Stamford record.
FYI, ARCC's procedure would place the Stamford report in the hands of all committee members prior to the next meeting. Each member would vote on the report without any discussion prior to the meeting. The first discussion would occur at the meeting, at which time a final first round vote will be taken. The record could potentially go through 2 more rounds of voting at subsequent meetings
