Hi Andy,

I just looked at the picture you posted and have concluded that this is a
different bird than the one we had found a couple of days earlier near
Marrietta in Lac qui Parle County, almost due south of your bird.  Our bird
had a darker chest and perhaps a more vibrant salmon colored belly.
Interestingly, while this range in plumage is not indicated in either the
Sibley or National Geographic field guides that I have, it reminds me of
the pair that nested in northwestern Yellow Medicine County a few years
ago.
