sulfur-bellied flycatcher mingus
1. dena greenwood found a SULFUR-BELLIED FLYCATCHER up on the mingus mts on wednesday - see her note below.
2. nanette & i have relatives here so did not get up to the mingus until today.
3. not surprisingly we did NOT find dena's sulfur-bellied flycatcher, but we tried.
4. we did find our 1st yavapai county RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH though!

Checking with Carl Tomoff (Yavapai County Recorder) he said it was the first
recording ever of a Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher on Mingus Mt. Previously seen
in the Bradshaw Mts. and Oak Creek Canyon (actually nested a few years at the
confluence of West Fork and Oak Creek). So this was a very far north recording
for this species.

Directions: Go to the summit of Mingus Mt., turn lft. at the Mingus Mt. Recreation
parking lot. Follow road all the way back, just past Methodist Church camp there is
a sign on right side of road that says "Gaddes Canyon Trailhead" Turn rt.
Drive (1/4 mi. - or less) until you see trailhead sign on left. Park and follow trail in about
1/4 mi. (just past cattle gate - you have to physically open the wire gate). A
little ways in on the right, atop of a tall ponderosa is where he was sitting. Not singing.

Good luck,
