Arrived before 7:00, at the same time as Wyatt Engelhoff and John Groves, coming from New Mexico. Sunny and cool. With Rick’s help we staked out all corners of the yard for over three hours as more and more birders arrived before the Fan-tailed Warbler was finally spotted by Laura Graham the fountain on the shady slope a little after 10:00. My maximum simultaneous count of birders was 40!

Note that the time stamp picked up by cellular network is from New Mexico (1 hour ahead).

    Comments: Constant flow of multiple Broad-tailed Hummers coming and going from 8-10 feeders, as well as perching in the trees. This count is probably much lower than than the actual total.

    Comments: I originally entered this as GIWO, but they are quite rare here and it was heard-only. Still somewhat baffled, really sounded like Gila, do not think I spaced an ACWO

    Comments: Nice to hear it singing! (“O, sweet Canada!”). (from Chris - it looks more white to me than tan, perhaps a second-year white? Sang all morning - not a breeder here, but entered S breeding code to link to sex data in photograph.

    Comments: ***Rare. Finally showed after over 3 hours of searching; we watched it foraging for insects on the ground, at times walking deliberately and other times drooping the wings, fanning the tail, and darting quickly for prey. We also saw it checking for insects around the window sills beside the stairs.
