Catching Up: Louisiana Waterthrush

Now for my best find of the winter: the Louisiana Waterthrush. I have been working on a book of "Warblers of Arizona." This little guy has eluded me for several years. It only comes into Southern Arizona in very small numbers and usually solitary when it comes. Over the years one has been spotted near Sabino Canyon Dam, Santa Cruz River near Tumacacori, Santa Cruz River near Ina Road in Tucson, Santa Cruz River at Sasco Road west of Red Rock (north of Tucson), and San Pedro River in Hereford. I have searched all of those places after reports with no luck -- until last month at San Pedro. Here then is the Louisiana Waterthrush:
