Meteor Crater: Lark Bunting and early Black-headed Grosbeak; Walnut Canyon: NECO
A quick trip to Meteor Crater this morning showed some promising signs of spring migration. Highlights included a Lark Bunting, I believe a molting male. Lark Bunting is sparse anywhere above the Rim. Another good bird was an early Black-headed Grosbeak. Chipping, Lincoln's, White-crowned and Vesper Sparrows were all present, as were a good number of Ruby-crowned Kinglets and Yellow-rumped Warblers.



A brief stop at Walnut Canyon Ponds on the way home provided a great view of the nesting Osprey and a single Neotropic Cormorant on the water.
