The Massachusetts Avian Records Committee (MARC) was formed in 1989 for the purposes of evaluating, analyzing, archiving and sharing evidence supporting current and historical records of birds rare to the Commonwealth. 

We hope this website will be a valuable resource to fellow enthusiasts of bird distribution, as well as a fun place to rehash great finds and twitches or to catch up on what you've missed.  And we'd love to inspire you to find and document some more rare birds—and let us know when you do!  

Current MARC Members are Nick Block, Ian Davies, Mark Faherty, Jessica Johnson, Wayne Petersen, Ryan Schain, Tim Spahr, Scott Surner, and Jeremiah Trimble (Chair).
Sean Williams is Secretary and the person to contact with any submissions or questions.
