April 12-24, 2009 - 1st state record
(Female); Photographed; New Franklin, Howard Co.; Don Baldridge, Dana Morris, Paul Porneluzi; 22nd Annual MBRC Report, 2009-72.
Excellent photographs taken at the reporter's feeder showed all characters clearly including head colors, entirely black tail,
and unbarred, white uppertail coverts and rump.
While this species seems to show very little tendency to wander, with only two extralimital records in eastern North America known to the committee. Identification was unquestionable, and there was no suspicion of human-assisted displacement.
