Hm, montane breeder shows up on a barrier island.... A provenance fight, anyone?

SPI gets all kinds of crazy stuff, including presumed wild West Mexican birds sometimes (Got my lifer Aztec Thrush out there). And there was the eleania there last year. It'll be interesting to see what folks'll say about this one.
