Committee's view
Background
This record should have been included in SINAV 9:4 based on it's date, however, SINAV 9:4 was never published. SINAV 9 stopped at SINAV 9:1 and SINAV 10 was never produced (SINAV 11:1). Hence, this sighting was never included in any documentation and this is likely the reason why it was not compiled in Wang & Hails (2007). However, the original rare bird report was made available online in June 2021 (see links).
Verdict Accepted / Wild (Verifiable)
