Tucson/Ferruginous Pygmy Owl RFI

Hey folks,

So we're pretty well planned out and booked for a 5-day weekend, 1/2 phoenix and 1/2 Tucson, for 6 specifically targeted species, and 5 long-shots on the wish list.

I've just noticed that, SW of Tucson, recent sightings of Ferruginous Pygmy Owl produce the purple squares, but, due to its being a species of regional concern, zooming in does not produce site markers.

Does anyone know of a guide we might contact to take a couple of experienced, sensitive birders out for a shot at this would-be lifer?

Respond here, or send me a private message off-list.

Thanks

Homer Hansen of the AMNH South West Research Station is a superb bird guide with associations to many of the local area birders. He would be a good source.
