Ferrugenous Hawks, Rezzonico Park, Camp Verde
Birding the noon hour today around Rezzonico Family Park by Black's Bridge in Camp Verde, I came up with 18 species. Best were 2 Ferrugenous Hawks circling overhead. I had a humbling lesson when trying to locate the bird making a cardinal-like "chink" for several minutes. Finally saw it in a yard across the road – the metal clasp on a flag tapping the metal flag pole! Great social trail under the bridge and upstream. Anyone know the property status of the riparian strip on the Verde River upstream of the bridge?

If you strike a line north from North Black Bridge Loop to the Verde river; Town of Camp Verde owns the land to the west and everything to the east is private. So, the confluence with Beaver Cr is on private.

Most everything down there is in the flood plain (including the Police Stn and Library).

In 1979 and friend and I chased a bird call for half a mile in the PJ at Desert View until we figured out it was a hinge on one of our binocular straps :>)

I love it! And what a memorable chase that obviously was, Chuck.

I once turned a squeaky backpack strap into a brown creeper. And, no, I am not making this up to make Chuck feel better.

c'mon, you must have been dreaming up something that it might be-- 'fess up!

I have tried to track and follow sounds that I was making myself too, but never for a half mile. Smile

Well maybe it was a quarter mile...regardless it was long enough to be ridiculous. At that point in my tender young life I didn't know bird calls very well....
