Lower Oak Creek Canyon birds
I went down to lower Oak Creek Canyon this morning to chase a recent eBird report of a Bell's Vireo. I dipped on the target bird, but enjoyed an early spring morning with some nice recent arrivals. Highlights included a brilliant Yellow Warbler (in a few weeks, I'll stop caring about Yellow Warblers, but it was a spectacular sight today), a handful of singing Lucy's Warblers, two pairs of Hutton's Vireos, a Hammond's Flycatcher, and 3 Common Black-Hawks. A nice morning out there!
