The committee has finished voting on the PINK-FOOTED GOOSE found by Dr. Steven Mlodinow and the recent WHITE-TAILED KITE found by Jill Smith. Both records have been accepted, congratulations to both Steve and Jill. The official state list has not been updated yet to reflect this but should be in the coming week.
The BARNACLE GOOSE records (there are two) are still being considered. We are waiting on some more information that might shed more light on these records.
The CBRC website has a new feature. We can now send out notifications for each record once we have them voted on and ready to publish. So, a lot of you may be receiving these in the near future, don't be surprised when the records are from years past as we will be sending those out as well. Thank you to Ann Johnson (webmaster) for implementing this for us.
The committee is still on target to be caught up through all 2018 by the end of the year. At which point we will almost be to the point where we can vote on all records as they come in. This has been a long process and we are nearing our goal.
Thank you to everyone who submits records to the CBRC, we truly appreciate all of your efforts! I would also like to thank all of the committee members who volunteer their time to make this happen. Also, thank you to Peter Gent who has been putting in extra effort to getting the records published in the journal, Colorado Birds. Last but not least, thank you to Lisa Edwards who is the CBRC secretary and helps to make all of this happen.
If you would like to see a list of the committee members, please visit the CBRC site, on the home page look for the big check mark with the words Committee Members next to it. You can also poke around and see all the other things that are available on the site.
