Red Tank Draw, Wet Beaver Creek
Today (12/2/06) I started birding down at Red Tank Draw near Wet Beaver Creek. I arrived there in the late morning, but there were still a ton of birds around, with high numbers of White-crowned Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos, and Bushtits.
Here is the complete list for here:

Northern Flicker (3)
Ladder-backed Woodpecker (1)
Bridled Titmice
Juniper Titmice
Bushtit (~25)
Bewick's Wren (3)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Townsend's Solitaire (1)
Hermit Thrush (1)
Western Scrub-Jay
Spotted Towhee (4)
Chipping Sparrow (1)
White-crowned Sparrow (75+)
Dark-eyed Junco (Oregon, Pink-sided) (50+)
Northern Cardinal (1 male)
Common Raven
House Finch (1 female)

Getting some lunch in Camp Verde, I saw a Northern Harrier near a flock of ravens over the river.

Later in the afternoon I went up to the Beaver Creek trailhead and walked up to the White Mesa trailhead. I headed back at this point when the wind started to pick up and blow dust in my eyes. Here are all of the birds that I saw:

Gambel's Quail
Belted Kingfisher (1)
Gila Woodpecker (1 male)
Northern Flicker
Common Raven
Western Scrub-Jay
Juniper Titmice
House Wren (1)
Rock Wren (2)
Canyon Wren (1)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Western Bluebird (30+, in scattered flocks)
Spotted Towhee
Rufous-crowned Sparrow (1)
White-crowned Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco
House Finch (4)

Good birding!!!
