4/3/2013 21:23 Cameron Rutt Class III – Sight record documented by one observer. I suppose that this could/should? be a Class I considering that there is a photo; however, I consider both photographs to be far from diagnostic (and I disagree with the statement on Nemesis Birds that the photos “are more than satisfactory.” I would not be comfortable accepting the report based solely on the photos. That said, the limited description is adequate for TOSO, although I would have appreciated more details about proportion (long-tailed) and wing/face pattern.

2/17/2013 1:08 Dave DeReamus Class I Diagnostic Photograph Between the photos and the written description, I agree with this identification.

11/8/2012 21:59 Drew Weber Class III – Sight record documented by one observer. Photos are poor but very suggestive of this species. Description helps confirm the identification.

12/16/2012 9:23 Mike Fialkovich Class III – Sight record documented by one observer. Photo not diagnostic.
