Rare Bird Report Form
This form should be used to report observations of rare or unusual birds; those birds listed as Rare or Accidental in the "Birds of Bexar County" checklist. It can also be used to report a specific bird you may have questions about, or birds in unusual circumstances. The form may be used flexibly and need not be used at all except as a guideline. For a great article on how to report bird sightings, see this one by Greg Lasley and Donna Dittmann, called "How to Document Rare Birds."
Fill in as much as possible, and attach copies of original field notes, drawings, photos, etc. if possible. Download the printable version of this form in the Adobe Acrobat format for mailing.
You must hit the Submit button at
the bottom of this page for the form to be sent.
If you aren't sure whether the bird is really rare for Texas, check the Texas Bird Records Committee's Texas State List for acceptable species and the Review List for rare, recognizable subspecies, and presumptive species.
