Sixteenth Report of the Trinidad and Tobago Birds Status and Distribution Committee: Records Submitted During 2018

Martyn Kenefick

Abstract


The Trinidad and Tobago Rare Birds Committee was established in 1995 to assess, document and archive the occurrence of rare or unusual birds in Trinidad and Tobago and thus provide reliable long-term monitoring of our rarer species. Now re-named the Birds Status and Distribution Committee, we have assessed all records submitted during 2018. In all 107 records were adjudged, representing 54 different species. These included a first documented account for South America and two new species for Tobago.
