I saw this species twice in two far apart locations, and so I don't know if it is the same bird or two different birds. 1st) On the Armagosa River just just east of Shoshone. 2nd) On the Armagosa River about 1 mile south of Tacopa. I got very close to the bird both times and the greenish legs, speckling on the back and eye ring were obvious field marks. This and my other two postings were seen on 4/21 and 4/22.
