Nice day of birding in the Hucahuca Mountains at all the familiar sites.

E Buffalo Soldier Trail, Sierra Vista:
Pair of SCALED QUAIL flew across the road just east of SR 92, one landing on a wall

BUFF-BREASTED FLYCATCHER showing sporadically near the dam
ARIZONA WOODPECKER, DUSKY-CAPPED and BROWN-CRESTED FLYCATCHERS, a couple of DARK-EYED JUNCOS (Gray-headed)

Miller Canyon:
TWO SPOTTED OWLS, the usual male roosting in the previously described pine, and the female was briefly visible on the nest (tail only!) in a nearby sycamore
