Yellow-billed Cuckoo along Willow Creek in Prescott, Yavapai Co.
A male Yellow-billed Cuckoo vocalizing along Willow Creek this morning is a possible breeder and a first for that location.

Additionally, a pair of Cactus Wrens northwest of Seligman on 22 July represents a first probable breeding pair for that location in Coconino Co. and two Cassin's Sparrows nearly 10 miles apart in the vicinity of Kingman on 22 and 28 July are possible breeders, irregular in Mohave Co.

Cactus Wren nests were common in the cholla in the bottom of the Grand Canyon upstream of Granite Park in the Grand Canyon in 1998-99 on river left.  This area is the edge of the county.

Shaun Putz had a pair (?) in the county in Jack's Canyon near Sedona in 2011....also in the county.

That said this new location seem remarkable for the elevation...

I was wondering about previous records of breeding pairs in Coconino. Thanks, Chuck!
