Slate-throated Redstart (Myioborus miniatus), Turkey Creek as it crosses FR42, just west of the FR42b junction, Chiricahua Mts., Cochise County

This Slate-throated Redstart was photographed by Alan Schmierer on 27 May 2014

There are only 7 previously accepted records of this species for Arizona with another two pending. This is also the third photographed report from the Chiricahua Mountains this spring, some of which may pertain to the same individual.

This species is distinctive with slate gray upperparts, black around the face and throat, red belly, lack of white on the wing, red cap, white on the outer rectrices.
