At 11am on June 5 Jillian Johnston, Anne Pellegrini, and Ryan Davis found a female GRAY-COLLARED BECARD at the South Fork Zoological and Botanical Area, which is close to the Southwestern Research Station (Portal area in the Chiricahuas). P.D. Hulce, Chris West, and Bob Weaver soon relocated the bird and took numerous photographs. P.D. reported that the bird appears to be a member of the western subspecies uropygialis. This is believed to be a U.S. first. Location: the bird was found on the first two miles of the gravel road which goes into South Fork. The bird was located at the one mile mark by the bridge.
