Annual Reports

Each year, the committee publishes an annual report in the Bulletin of the Texas Ornithological Society detailing the decisions on all species reviewed during that year. See minutes for the minutes to our Annual Meetings.

  • The 2001 Annual Report did not add any new species to the official Texas state list.
  • The 2000 Annual Report officially added 2 species to the Texas state list: Buff-breasted Flycatcher and Blue Mockingbird. This brings the total species count at the end of 2000 to 620 species in good standing
  • The 1999 Annual Report officially added 5 species to the Texas state list: Stejneger’s Petrel, King Eider, Black-tailed Gull, Yellow-footed Gull, and Piratic Flycatcher. This brings the total species count at the end of 1999 to 618 species in good standing.
  • The 1998 Annual Report officially added 7 species to the Texas state list: Black-capped Petrel, Arctic Tern, Eurasian Collared-Dove, Dark-billed Cuckoo, and Red-Breasted Sapsucker; Berylline Hummingbird and Slate-throated Redstart were elevated to the Main List from the Presumptive list (and Black Swift was added to the Presumptive list). This brings the total species count at the end of 1998 to 613 species in good standing.

  • The 1997 Annual Report officially added 9 species to the Texas state list, 2 of which resulted from the split of Solitary Vireo (into Blue-headed, Plumbeous, and Cassin's Vireos). Records of Red-necked Stint, Kelp Gull, Roseate Tern, Ruddy Quail-Dove, Stygian Owl, Orange-billed Nightingale-Thrush, and Flame-colored Tanager were accepted as new additions to the state list while Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrow was removed from the state list, bringing the total species count at the end of 1997 to 606 species in good standing.

  • The 1996 Annual Report officially added 5 species to the Texas state list, 3 of which resulted from splits of Rufous-sided Towhee (Eastern Towhee and Spotted Towhee), Sharp-tailed Sparrow (Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrow and Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrow), and Northern Oriole (Baltimore Oriole and Bullock's Oriole). Records of Black-capped Chickadee and Northern Wheatear were accepted as new additions to the state list bringing the total species count at the end of 1996 to 598 species in good standing.

  • The 1995 Annual Report officially added 3 species to the Texas state list: Collared Forest-Falcon, Green Parakeet, and Red-crowned Parrot. Green Parakeet and Red-crowned Parrot were added since it was agreed that populations of these two species in the Lower Rio Grande Valley met the strict criteria for well-established species, whether as a result of natural occurrence, introduction, or both. During 1995, the committee also accepted a photographic record of "Common" Teal, the Palearctic race of Green-winged Teal.

  • The 1994 Annual Report did not add any new species to the official Texas state list. However, the committee did accept a sight record of Crescent-chested Warbler. This previously unrecorded species constituted a new addition to the Presumptive Species List.

  • The 1993 Annual Report officially added 6 species to the Texas state list: Red-necked Grebe, Collared Plover, Wandering Tattler, Slaty-backed Gull, Green-breasted Mango, and Olive Warbler.
