I went back to Gilbert (and the Rio Salado project in Phoenix) today in search of recently reported Northern Parula, Painted Bunting, and Varied Thrush. I didn't find any of them, but was surprised to find about 30 Black-Crowned Night Herons in Gilbert (there are usually 5-7 roosting...30 is really unusual).
The Pyrrhuloxia is a relative of the Northern Cardinal, and Phoenix is about the northern extent of it's range. This was only the third or so time I've seen one.
