How to find: Listed as a rare winter visitor (seen only once on the Provo CBC-1984), it nonetheless seems to turn up at least somewhere in the state almost every year. This year two have been observed in Logan; in fact Cache Valley seems to have the majority of sightings in the state over the years. Perhaps the best way to find this species is to double check every Robin in a flock of Robins during the winter. Easier said than done.
