Submitted to the ABC. There are 23 accepted records for Arizona and two under review by the ABC, so this will likely be the 26th state record. At least one prior record (2010) was from Whitewater Draw. I think this can be aged as a SY based on the strong contrast between replaced adult coverts and remiges and very worn brown feathers.
