Mt Lemmon Again

A good day on Mt Lemmon, although the birding was very slow in the heat of the afternoon.

Agua Caliente Park:

NORTHERN BEARDLESS-TYRANNULETS were easy to find between the parking lot and Rose Cottage. Also there, GREATER ROADRUNNER, BROWN-CRESTED FLYCATCHER, BLACK-TAILED GNATCATCHER, and RUFOUS-WINGED SPARROW. ‘DESERT’ PURPLE MARTINS were nearby.

A couple of BAND-TAILED PIGEONS flew over, and CORDILLERAN FLYCATCHERS were around. At the feeders outside the realty office, MAGNIFICENT and BROAD-TAILED HUMMINGBIRDS, HAIRY WOODPECKER, STELLER’S JAY, YELLOW-EYED JUNCO, and PINE SISKIN.

Very quiet, but we did find MOUNTAIN CHICKADEE, RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH, BROWN CREEPER, OLIVE WARBLER, GRACE’S and RED-FACED WARBLERS, and YELLOW-EYED JUNCO.

Rose Canyon:

Again, very slow in the afternoon, but we eventually uncovered WARBLING VIREO, WESTERN BLUEBIRD, GRACE’S and RED-FACED WARBLERS, PAINTED REDSTART, YELLOW-EYED JUNCO, and PINE SISKIN, but no Buff-breasted Flycatchers.

Tucson:

Several LESSER NIGHTHAWKS were seen around dusk.
