Recent Vagrants and Rarities

We invite the Rochester birding community to share images, stories, and relevant details of recently observed vagrants and rare birds.  Our new Recent Vagrants and Rarities page will serve as an index to those recently submitted. Our vision is to catalog these sightings for long-term utility to the birding public.

This page will serve as an index to those recently submitted. Larger images and a full description of the bird are available to RBA members (just log in and click the image). This first one is available to all for a period of time.
