The Crimson-collared Day at Frontera

We were determined to see this bird. I sat on the pond side to take photos of the Ovenbird. After an hour or more I saw Gunnar and another birder with their binoculars up then down. So I returned to my viewing and saw the bird and called Gunnar over. He had to admit that they had been looking at it but did not recognize it. I staked it out a few days later but had to use the restroom and missed it by 15 minutes after sitting there for almost 2 hours. We missed the Blue Bunting by a minute at the normal drip. None the else, we celebrated.
