Crotophaga sulcirostris. Found at Sweetwater Wetlands, near Tucson, Arizona, earlier today. This is a serious rarity in these here parts. These tropical birds visit extreme southwest Texas more regularly, but all other observations are scattered records.

I went there three times to find this bird. Today, I sat on the ground near where he had been seen, and waited. Other people eventually gathered, about a dozen or so. After I had waited over an hour, he showed up. He hung around and gave everyone good looks for at least a half hour.

I think he could seriously use to brush his hair!

I saw some of these one year when there were terrible fires in the Everglades, and some moved North to safety. Awesome bird and nice shot.

Great shot! I hear there is Panther running around in Southern Arizona. I would love to see one of those. My cousin keeps telling me of a neighborhood here in East Mesa where tropical birds are wild in the trees. I think he is pulling my leg though. But I have seen cockatiels and parakeets since moving here.
