Description

REAL CRUMMY image...but again, solely for documentation. This was one of two banded individuals initially discovered in Texas. When the band numbers were researched, one bird was determined to be an escapee from a Kansas zoo and the other was a wild bird hatched and banded in the Yucatan. After drifting back and forth between Texas and Louisiana for a few years, the wild bird spent some time by itself in Grand Chenier, Cameron Parish, Louisiana. Seen here with Michael J. Musumeche.
This represents the first accepted Louisiana state record.
