State List Additions Tracker

This page provides a summary of the changes to the Texas State List since Annual Reports became available in 1987. Note that the changes are based on when the additions/deletions are published in the relevant Annual Report, rather than on when the individual records were first found or were accepted by the TBRC. A number of additions to the State List have occured due to taxonomic splits. Some splits involve the creation of a new taxon while leaving the original taxon in place (e.g. Black-crested Titmouse), while some splits involve the deletion of an existing taxon and the creation of two or more new taxa (e.g. Whip-poor-will).The "ADDED" and "LOST" columns include in brackets the number of additions/deletions excluding those due to splits.
