Mostly in search of the Hooded Warbler reported from here recently, but also looking for the Pacific Wren reported here. I found the former but not the latter. 0.83 miles by GPS. Complete list of herps included only one Lowland Leopard Frog, Rana yavapaiensis.

  13. Number observed: 5

    Comments: Small flock of acrobatic gray cotton balls with long tails, giving high pitched calls. Regular at this location. Subspecies assumed by range; they were a bit too distant and fast-moving to study head pattern well. Counted as they flew one-by-one from one juniper to another.

    Comments: First heard, then seen.

  16. Number observed: 1

  28. Number observed: 1

    Comments: Continuing stakeout bird originally found by Troy Corman and Ken DeBrosse on 3 December. Photographed, poorly. I found the bird to be quite shy - I saw it three times but each time it disappeared within seconds and I wasn't able to find it again for a long time. Lifer.
