Rosy-finches just over the border in Utah
I just saw this eBird checklist from a couple weeks ago (20 November 2018) of a large mixed flock of Black and Gray-crowned Rosy Finches about 30 miles NW of Page in Utah canyon country: Coupled with the observation of a lone stray rosy-finch (Black?) southeast of Mormon Lake on 13 November 2018 (, it seems reasonable to be on high alert for these very sporadic visitors to Northern AZ.  

Past sightings of rosy-finches have been at the Echo Cliffs near Page, Sunset Crater and up on the SF Peaks. Similar areas like the Vermilion Cliffs, Red Mountain, etc are worth considering.
