The Records Committee began deliberating on this record.
The Records Committee completed its review and finalised its verdict.
|Sound recordings obtained by the observer (and others; see links and subrecords) indicate that the typical call of the bird was ~6Khz, pointing to a Pale-legged Leaf Warbler as opposed to a Sakhalin (one of which also present at the same site simultaneously). The observer of this parent record only heard the bird on 13 November, but others (see sub-records) later described features including: 1) "Olive upperparts strongly contrasting with greyish crown, stark contrast compared to another Arctic Warbler in the vicinity that had a duller plumage, with upperparts more concolorous with crown." and 2) "Dark crown contrasting with olive-green upperparts and flesh-coloured legs ruled out all the other possible leaf warblers except Sakhalin. The bird was also no more than 30 cm off the forest floor. Subsequently, brief views as the bird circled the observer at range, never more than a metre above the forest floor.".|
