Eastern Kingbird near Sacred Mtn/ Wet Beaver Creek
I was around Wet Beaver Creek today and decided to look for sparrows near Sacred Mountain, which is just up the hill from the V Bar V Ranch. I parked at the little pull off for FR 09201A along the main Forest Road 618. Lots of Black-throated and Rufous-crowned Sparrows were singing. Good looks at Cassin's Kingbird, Ash-throated Flycatcher, and an Eastern Kingbird about 75 meters up the 9201A road. It flushed and flew SE towards the base of Sacred Mountain. I was able to relocate it at coordintes: 34.6593   -111.7099 (Google Maps). Walk the road to the Forest Service gate, go right and walk the fence line towards Sacred Mountain. It was using a dead 15 foot Juniper at the corner of 2 fences as its main perch, then flew south again along the Sacred Mountain Trail.

It was back within 100 yards of the trail head when we saw it.

apparently some people went yesterday and today and nobody saw the kingbird. so it is either gone or moved enough away to not be found.
