This blog covers a few birds we saw in California Gulch and an evening at the Amado STP. (I thought STP meant State Park). I posted a mislabeled bird on my last bog and no one responded to the Hermit Thrush which was actually a Swainson's Thrush. I also called A Black-chinned Hummingbird a Black-throated Hummingbird but I didn't mean to do that. That was just oldziemers kicking in. Total list count for the trip now stands at 291.
|Vermillion Flycatcher- California Gulch|
|Western Tanager-California Gulch|
|Olive-sided Flycatcher-Arivaca Lake|
|Brewers Sparrow-part of a flock of 6 on the road to Montosa Canyon|
|Cooper's Hawk-outside our condo in Green Valley. A pair have a nest here.|
The following pictures were taken at Amado STP at 7PM May 3. These are just record shots taken at a distance too far for my little camera.
|A flock of 14 White-faced Ibis flew over at the Amado STP in the morning.|
|Wilson's Phalaropes were getting anxious to migrate.|
|And off they go. Heading north. This was about half the total birds that were there. I searched through the flock but can't see any Red-necks.|
|Scaup-Greater or Lesser?|
