During 2016, a total of 129 records were adjudged, representing 67different species. Eurasian Wigeon, Slender-billed Kite and Audouin’s Gull were accepted as new species for the country. However following an in-depth review, the South American Classification Committee has re-assessed Caribbean Coot, F. caribea as being conspecific with American Coot, F. americana. As a consequence the Official List total now stands at 482.
