Sinaloa Wren (Thryothorus sinaloa), Lower Huachuca Canyon, Cochise County

This Sinaloa Wren was found by Richard Fray on 29 August 2014 and photographed by David Blue on 30 August 2014

Four prior accepted records for Arizona and the United States, two of which are from this canyon. This is a presumed returning bird and the first report for this location since 18 May 2014. This species is essentially a west Mexican endemic. It is regular in central Sonora and is reported to be expanding its range northward so that it now can be found within 30 miles of the US border. 

Separated from similar species by the large bill, black and white streaking at the rear of the auriculars and rusty tail contrasting with the brownish back.
