Abstract: In 2015 the British Columbia Bird Records Committee reached decisions on 56 records. Of these records, 47 were accepted to the main list, one was accepted to the provisional list, and eight were not accepted (seven due to identification not being established, and one based on provenance). Records submitted involved birds seen between 2000 and 2015. The committee previously established a review list, available online, and is seeking submissions of records for any species on that list. To assist in record submission, a revised report form was created in 2015.

Key Words: rare bird reports, British Columbia, checklist
