Records Committee Review:



1st round: 19 Mar 2008 4 acc, 3 not
2nd round: 30 Jul 2008 0 acc, 7 not
Completed: 16 Nov 2008 Not accepted

Although observer competence and experience with the species were more than adequate, the Committee did not feel the evidence was sufficient to preclude the possibility of this individual being another Canada goose sub-species.
