Kansas Bird Records Committee Official Report Form
Use this form to report your rare bird sightings for consideration by the Kansas Bird Records Committee. This form is meant to be a help, not a hindrance. The KBRC members would like to have as much information as possible about your bird sighting; more information usually makes it easier for us to make a decision. So please make an effort to document your sighting carefully and completely. Paying close attention to the types of information requested below will make it easier for you to document other rare birds in the future. But don't feel obligated to fill in every blank space for every bird if you don't feel that it is necessary/appropriate for your sighting!
Click here for an excellent HTML tutorial on writing up rare bird sightings. And if you want to get a physical (paper) form to fill out and send to the committee via snail-mail, several options are available on the Kansas Bird Record Committee page. The form is available as a Word, Rich Text Format and ASCII text format as well as an Adobe Acrobat format if you'd prefer to use any of those formats. Just follow the Kansas Bird Records Committee page link.
Questions, comments and suggestions can be directed to Chuck Otte, KBRC Secretary.
And, as noted below, for the longer (description, habitat, etc) boxes, just type in the information without using the RETURN or ENTER key on your keyboard. The text will automatically wrap around to fill the box, and the RETURN characters also make data processing a bit more difficult.
