    Equipment Note

NOTES: Bird was not seen at the time, but was seen both before and after this recording was made; bird appeared to be about 25 m away on steep, rocky slope above canyon, at the bottom of which ran a dry streambed; redstart was moving actively through undergrowth of medium density; woodland was a sparse combination of Douglas Fir, White Pine, and an oak with deeply incised leaves (much like Black Oak from California mountains); at confluence of two small streambeds (one with running water a short distance above this point) was a dense ÒgroveÓ of small (ca. 2? m tall) saplings that appeared to be Douglas Fir and possibly pines; this was recorded just below first stream crossing along trail about ? mile below trailhead at Ramsey Vista Campground; clear, intermittent 15 knot breeze but canyon bottom was largely sheltered, and in the low 60s; this bird, representing the fifth record for Arizona and the ninth north of Mexico, was first found on 26 May 2005 by Dr. Larry King, after which, it was seen by many people before being found dead on 5 June (now specimen # UAz-17957 at University of Arizona collection: skull completely ossified, 7.9g, light fat, wing chord: 60 mm, tail: 64 mm, culmen length 8.6 mm, culmen width: 4.7 mm).
