Chat 67:1-4: Paul Sykes - A winter adult was seen by Paul Sykes at Pea Island, Dare County, on 28 December 2001. There were no other observers, nor was a photo taken. This report was considered as inadequately documented by the Committee on a first vote and was sent for outside review. The record was then accepted on the second vote. This is the first record of the species for the state, and acceptance of the description places the species on the Provisional List. There are a handful of recent records of this Asian/Pacific species from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in nearby Virginia. Though there has been concern about the origin of these Atlantic coast birds, the American Birding Association (2002) has accepted the species onto its list of birds in the ABA area. There were no "questionable origin" votes from the Committee.
