Articles | By Alan Schmierer | Accepted November 14, 2014

In September 2013 the author presented information reviewing the recent winter records of Botteri’s Sparrow (Peucaea botteri arizonae) in Arizona (Schmierer 2013). Included in that article were the results of the author’s 6, 7 and 8 January 2013 survey for Botteri’s Sparrows along the roads of Patagonia Lake Ranch Estates, just south of Patagonia Lake, Santa Cruz Co, Arizona. Also included were the results of a February 2013 follow-up survey of a more limited area. The protocol and results of those surveys are detailed on page 4 of that article. This current publication reports the results of the author’s follow-up surveys of January 2014.
