Field notes and information

ARIZONA April 2015: A rather unusual species to find in Arizona in spring. It's a migrant from Mexico, but this one either hung on from last year or was one of the first to arrive this year. Judging by its condition it'd been flying for some time.

It was flying very weakly through dense bushes along a canyon.
