The Idaho Bird Records Committee
The IBRC’s purpose is to increase the knowledge and understanding of the birds of Idaho, by providing an officially validated and accurate data source of bird distribution and patterns of avian vagrancy in Idaho.
Committee functions include:
- Evaluate reports of rare or unusual bird sightings in Idaho.
- Permanently maintain, for future reference, all original submitted bird reports and subsequent Committee comments and votes.
- Establish standards of observation and reporting that will increase knowledge of birds found in Idaho.
- Provide a means by which sight reports can gain universal acceptance as valuable scientific data.
- Publish and maintain an official Checklist of Idaho Birds and an official List of Idaho Review Species.
