|Gila Woodpecker, Tucson, AZ, April 7, 2012|
Just back from a week trip out to southeast Arizona. Lots of good stuff and great weather. I just downloaded the photos now so should have some more up soon. Still tallying up the totals too so I don't have all that info yet. Will post them up when I get them set.
As for migration here it seems to have picked up. South winds last night brought in some migrants to the area. I headed over to Quabbin Park this morning despite my jet lag and had some good stuff including Blue-headed Vireo, Eastern Towhee, ten Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, five Double-crested Cormorants, 30 Pine Warblers and a similar number of Chipping Sparrows plus a good variety of other birds. I also went to Covey WMA late AM with Wilson and we had a singing Field Sparrow, a couple calling Broad winged Hawks and an Osprey. Also had a Bobcat cross the road as we drove in.
