Here we have a very rare bird, in the U.S.
They are common in Mexico, but there are only about three dozen or so records from our side of the border, roughly half each in AZ and TX. They represent two different subspecies, of northern Mexican races, the western caudatus in AZ and eastern jouyi in TX. All of the records have been in the last 34 years. Successful nesting evidence has been most difficult to come by, despite good coverage in the cases of the AZ birds, and a pair has never yet been known in TX of the jouyi subspecies. Surely they have nested in both places. These photos are of the northeastern Mexican jouyi subspecies in TX.
