Committee's view
Background
Dates of sighting are imprecise. Reported in Wang & Hails (2007) that a bird was "salvaged in the last quarter of 2001". Checking the UWBM Database where the specimen is kept suggests that this was a Japanese Sparrowhawk Instead. The accession number, based on the date, is most likely UWBM 73886 (as of writing, 9 August 2021, the date of the specimen listed in the UWBM database is "2001/88/0", certainly due to formatting error.)
Verdict Not accepted (Specimen)
