First Round Votes

12/3/2013 15:07 Drew Weber Class IV-B – insufficient evidence for evaluation. A terribly sparse description. This committee can hardly rule anything out.

6/17/2013 16:37 Cameron Rutt Class IV-B – insufficient evidence for evaluation. Unfortunately, this is another report from West Fairview – arguably the single most productive location during Superstorm Sandy – that contains a description that is lacking in details. A 17-word description of a jaeger is simply insufficient for this committee to properly evaluate. This sparse report does not eliminate Long-tailed Jaeger, which, like Parasitic Jaeger, fits the few notes. Mention of whether or not this pointy-tailed jaeger exhibited white flashes on the underside of the primaries would be particularly useful, as would discussion of breastband presence/absence or contrast between the coverts/flight feathers on the upperparts.

10/22/2013 1:13 Devich Farbotnik Class IV-B – insufficient evidence for evaluation. Very incomplete description.
