Several significant updates to the Michigan Bird Records Committee (MBRC) website have just been completed which you may find of interest.
1) I have updated the photo gallery with well over 100 new photos covering 60+ species, subspecies, and seasonal review species. This includes several species not previously represented in the gallery and many historically significant specimens (such as Thick-billed Murre, Eskimo Curlew, Burrowing Owl, White-throated Swift, Cassin's and Bachman's Sparrows, Black-headed Grosbeak, and many more). Species pages with new photos are marked by a yellow "new" icon. Significant recent records with photo representation include Tropical and Couch's Kingbirds, Yellow-billed Loon, and Least Tern.
The photo gallery is located here: http://www.michiganaudubon.org/research/recordscommittee/photo_gallery.html
2) The searchable database tool has been updated as of 29 Nov 2010. It is here: http://taiga.com/~mbrc/accepted.php
3) Please note that you can hyperlinnk to a species's searchable database output by clicking on the species name within the state checklist. For example, if you click on "Black-bellied Whistling-Duck", you will be forwarded to the output showing all 3 Michigan accepted records of that species. Further, the blue camera icons in the right column of this output will link you to the photo for each individual. The state checklist is available here:
4) We have added seasonal review species (currently including only Baird's
Sandpiper in the spring) and subspecies (such as "Great White" Heron and
"Yellow" Palm Warbler) to the Michigan Review List. Scroll to the
bottom of the list to view these additions here:
5) We are still actively soliciting letters of interest for our upcoming 2011 vacancy until 10 December. More information (and regular updates of general MBRC business and news) are available on our homepage here:
This is the page we recommend for bookmarking.
I hope you find the MBRC website useful and interesting. As always, comments or questions are welcome.
