Greeting birders,

The Arizona Bird Committee recently received a submission of Military Macaw
from Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve from August 1992. Up to seven were
reported from this location in mid-August over the period of a couple of
days. At the time they were assumed to be escapees; however, the species
was picked in both 1987 and 1998 in Birding Magazine's next 10 species for
the Arizona region and they breed in northern Sonora. The sighting was not
published at the time in American Birds. If anyone has any information
lurking in old notebooks or slides the ABC would greatly appreciate any
additional information to add to the record.

The ABC submission form can be found at

Thank you and good birding!
Lauren Harter
