Birds listed as either accidental or hypothetical should not be expected to be found anywhere in Arizona with regularity, and are put on an official review list, with reports of these birds requested for submission to the Arizona Bird Committee with full details (including when possible, photographic, tape, video or sketch documentation). The order is as given by the Arizona Bird Committee list, with some modifications according to recent taxonomical changes. Introduced, casual, accidental, hypothetical, extirpated and extinct species are included in the total species counts for Arizona.
