As I mentioned in a post earlier this month, I’ve been seeing some migrating birds around town as they pass through on their southward journeys. Even though I had already seen a Wilson’s Warbler at Desert Botanical Garden, I was totally excited to go out in my backyard a few days ago and see one happily hopping around one of our trees. He didn’t stay for long and I never saw him again but you can see he politely posed for me at many angles.
And I was totally happy to see some more Townsend’s Warblers at Granada Park, another beautiful little bird that seems to like pine trees.
And, yup, more of these flycatchers, too! I also saw a flycatcher in my yard but it was gone in a flash before I got my camera so I don’t know what kind it was 😦
But there were also a couple more lifers in the last few days. These were both at Scottsdale Xeriscape Garden:
Time is slipping away but I’m still hoping to get some more migrants. Here is a brief summary of those I’ve seen:
