Discovered by: Neighborhood resident. First observed, positively ID’ed, photographed, and reported by Enric F. Later seen, confirmed, and photographed by numerous other birders.
Relative Rarity: First ever record for Anchorage or south-central Alaska for that matter! Very rare for mainland Alaska with just a few eBird records from the Nome area in 2009. Casual in western and south-western Alaska with “two handfuls” of records from Attu, Adak, Gambell, St. Paul, Buldir Island, and Shemya Island.
