The Florida Ornithological Society Records Committee met yesterday (31 
July) at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Among the 50 or so 
submissions assessed, we accepted two new species to the Official State 

Ancient Murrelet, 15 Dec 2009, Volusia Co. (specimen)
Red-legged Thrush, 31 May 2010, Brevard Co. (photos)

That brings the list up to 510 species.

We also accepted records for the following species with fewer than five 
accepted records:

Yellow-nosed Albatross, Key West, 2009
Neotropical Cormorant, Viera, 2009
Neotropcial Cormorant, Wakulla Co, 2009-10.

Long-eared Owl (two specimens from the 1990s)
Green-tailed Towhee (1 Nov 2009 - 10 Mar 2010, Escambia Co.)

A number of other submissions were accepted. Details will be posted on 
the FOS website within the next few months, and I will personally 
contact all who submitted records and reports.

Keep up the exciting birding in Florida!
