Madera Canyon

A brief visit to Madera Canyon mid-morning produced a few nice birds, which included TWO female CASSIN’S FINCHES at Santa Rita Lodge, skulking together in an oak tree.

At Madera Kubo Cabins, several MAGNIFICENT HUMMINGBIRDS, ARIZONA WOODPECKER, calling INCA DOVE, a pair of HEPATIC TANAGERS, TOWNSEND’S WARBLER, PAINTED REDSTART, a couple of YELLOW-EYED JUNCOS and more PINE SISKINS than have been around lately. Thanks Cora!

I don’t usually mention my birding guests by name, but today I’m going to make an exception. It was a genuine pleasure to spend a few hours birding with the remarkable Bob Wallick, who got some fantastic photos around the feeders at Madera Kubo and Santa Rita Lodge. Bob was my ‘most experienced’ guest to date, being a mere 93 years young. See you next time, Bob!
