Kendrick Peak Olive Warbler
Olive warblers have such a patchy distribution in Coconino County that I thought I'd pass along seeing a lovely male this morning (6/7/11) about one mile up the Kendrick Peak trail. This must be one of the northern-most occurring individuals of this species!

Nice photo Jason - I have seen them on Kendrick as well in years past and you now have me curious about it's northern breeding range.

On my morning bike rides up Schultz Pass Road this spring, I am hearing OLWA regularly---one to three individuals each morning. Mind you, because I am biking (not very fast) I have lots of opportunity to hear them. When I get off the bike to double check with binoculars, the birds do turn out to be olives, not hoarse juncos. They are singing the burry "hirrJI hirrjJI hirrJI" more than the whistled "plida plida plida" (Sibley).
