BUTTERBREDT SPRING. I awoke this morning to a very stiff wind blowing down the canyon. When I got out of the van a little after 5:30 a.m. I was surprised to see many birds flying up the canyon passing the spring area. I've since learned this is a very typical pattern here at Butterbredt Spring, many birds just fly by and don't land here. Most of the birds flying up the canyon were Western Tanagers and Wilson's Warblers with a sprinkling of Warbling Vireos and probably Yellow Warblers. The down canyon side of the oasis was a bit protected from the wind and that's where it was the birdiest. By 8:00 most of the birds seemed to have disappeared. A little after 8:30 I hiked down the canyon again but not as far as last night. 5:30a-9:45a. Clear, windy early a.m., 45°/63°F.

Are you submitting a complete checklist of the birds you were able to identify?
