Bendire's Thrasher near Leupp
I had to drive to Kykotsmovi for work today. On the way home I checked on Round Cedar Lake, which is just south of Route 15 (Leupp Rd) a few miles west of Leupp. Last fall a few of us found this to be a very sizable body of water (fed by the great monsoon). The lake has dried up almost entirely over the winter, and I wouldn't recommend it as a birding destination right now. However, on my way back to the highway I encountered a single Bendire's Thrasher (!) perched atop a pile of debris in someone's yard! This was quite near to the Round Cedar Church of the Nazarene.

A Golden Eagle near the Tolani Lakes turnoff was the only other bird of note.
