Meteor Crater: Northern Parula and Swainson's Thrush
There was some decent late-migration activity at Meteor Crater RV Park this morning, 28 May, including the headline birds, Hammond's Flycatcher, Green-tailed Towhee, Wilson's Warbler, and MacGillivray's Warbler.

Second Northern Parula at Meteor Crater
On a return trip to Meteor Crater RV Park this morning I found what I thought was the continuing Northern Parula from 28 May. My first view was from the back and I clearly saw the green dorsal patch and white wing bars as the bird flitted around. When the bird faced me I was surprised to see it was a stunning adult male, and so not the same bird from Sunday. Amazing to have two different NOPAs there in three days! Unfortunately, I was unable to get pictures of today's bird.

Migrants were fairly numerous, and included quite a few Warbling Vireos, several Empids (including one Willow Flycatcher), Black-headed Grosbeak, Wilson's, MacGillivray's and Yellow-rumped Warblers. John Coons and Dave Stejskal showed up and John briefly saw a Townsend's Warbler that we were unable to refind.
