Transcript 1998 Annual Report for the Texas Bird Records Committee Published David Sarkozi The 1998 Annual Report for the Texas Bird Records Committee (TBRC), a standing committee ofthe Texas Ornithological Society*, has been published. The TBRC has reached a decision on several records on the Upper Texas Coast. The OG Checklist Committee defers to the TBRC on all birds considered Review Species by the TBRC. Below, I've excerpted records from the TBRC annual report that affect records on the Upper Texas Coast. The format ofthe report is: Species(binomial name) (number of accepted records for Texas).

One 8 miles north of Rosenberg, Fort Bend, on 7 February 1997 (1997-30). UNACCEPTED RECORDS A number of factors may contribute to a record being denied acceptance. It is quite uncommon for a record to not be accepted because the bird was obviously misidentified. More commonly, a record is not accepted because the material submitted was incomplete, insufficient, superficial, or just too vague to properly document the reported occurrence while eliminating all other similar species. The nonacceptance of any record simply reflects the opinion ofthe TBRC that the documentation, as submitted did not meet the rigorous standards appropriate for adding data to the formal historical record. The TBRC makes every effort to be as fair and objective as possible regarding each record If the committee is unsure about any particular record it prefers to err on the conservative side and not accept a good record rather than validate a bad one.
