I was interested in examining this bird; however, I have been at the Sam
for nearly an hour at and have not heard nor seen a waterthrush, and I feel
like I have cycled through the birds a few times now.

I don't want to say "never", but I ca not think of a single LOWA record from AZ from a pond - they essentially occur along rivers and streams with running water. This is also true for them wintering in the Tropics. Given that this bird was at a small pond with a mud edge should have made people question the ID.
