Mt Lemmon

More sightseeing, today with Melanie Builder and our dogs. We headed to the top of Mt Lemmon in the Santa Catalina Mountains and walked the dogs around the Bigelow loop. There was basically one large loose flock across the entire area. Warblers were prevalent, mostly HERMIT and TOWNSEND’S with RED-FACED, OLIVE and a YELLOW-RUMPED mixed in, as well as PAINTED REDSTART, PYGMY and RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH, HAIRY WOODPECKER, BROWN CREEPER, HOUSE WREN, MOUNTAIN CHICKADEE, WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE and loads of YELLOW-EYED JUNCOS. It was a similar story at Marshall Gulch.

Melanie humored me as I stopped at most of the available parking spots on the way back down to take more scenic photos. SE Arizona has never looked better!
