Cameron: Hooded Warbler, Northern Waterthrush, etc
A very early morning trip to Cameron was extremely productive today. The highlight was a knockout male Hooded Warbler working the northeast corner of the Trading Post courtyard. I'm aware of 8 prior records of Hooded Warbler from northern AZ, two of which were from spring. The courtyard was really hopping with birds, including Lucy's, Wilson's, Orange-crowned, and Yellow-rumped Warblers, White-winged Dove, Northern Mockingbird, American and Lesser Goldfinch, White-crowned and Lincoln's Sparrows, and a Green-tailed Towhee. A good looking Blue-winged Teal was down at the pond near the old truck crossing.

   

   

   

   

Tappan Spring was also quite lively. A female-type Cassin's Finch was a bit odd to be at such a low elevation at this date. A Northern Waterthrush is right on schedule. Common Yellowthroat, Yellow Warbler, Lucy's Warbler, and Yellow-breasted Chat were all fun to see.
