About the montana bird records committee
The Montana Bird Records Committee was formed in 1991 to objectively evaluate reports of rare birds. The MBRC has three main functions: (1) to evaluate written reports and supporting documentation for the occurrence of rare birds and other unusual observations (e.g., out-of-season or outside normal range within the state) in Montana; (2) to maintain an official list of Montana birds; and (3) to maintain an official tally of the number of accepted records for each “rare” species (i.e., species documented 20 or fewer times in the state).
To be included in the Montana Bird Distribution database, the MBRC requires written reports for all bird species documented 20 or fewer times in the state.

Please send your report and other supporting documentation (e.g., high-resolution jpeg and/or sound recording) to Jeff Marks (firstname.lastname@example.org).
