    Comments: *RARE* I had a clear and close view (20 feet away directly in front of me and about 15 feet high) of the bird flying relatively slowly parallel to the river's edge from south to north up the Rio Grande on the U.S. side from the Native Trail Overlook structure. Overall solid coloring looked more very dark blue than black with a bright red rear tail band the only other color. The bird flew from the thick growth to the right to the thick growth to the left for about 2.5 to 3 seconds. I have ruled out thousands of other birds while studying photographs. Curious to see if there have been any other reports here or near here ever.
