My GOSH you folks are quick! As I am primarily a photographer, vs. a
birder, I am sure glad that folks like you know so much more than I do.
Josh beat Bruce and Lori by mere seconds, and the whole ID only took 8
minutes! Not sure if that is a record, but simply "Wow"!
This was a gorgeous little bird. Funny how many people go to Bosque and
completely bypass anything that is not a Crane, Snow Goose or Raptor.
Now that I look at Sibley's, sure does look right to me.
Thanks again, you folks are simply grand.
