      As most of you are aware, there is a well-documented Tufted Flycatcher
      on the lower Colorado River in Arizona between Hoover Dam and Willow
      Beach. Photos are posted at:

      http://azfo.org/photos.html

      The finders report two birds (which seems more than twice as bizarre as
      just one bird), but I'm not sure what the evidence may be for a second
      individuals.



      This site is adjacent to Nevada, but also only about 40 miles from
      California. The record shows, once again, that vagrants from Mexico
      don't necessarily turn up only right at the border and that many species
      that occur in nw. Mexico perhaps have the potential to reach California.




      For more information, there's a long thread about this occurrence on the
      AZ-NM list serve.
