there seemed to be a large movement of these today, with single birds and some small groups both in the mesquite and in the riparian forest

1

quite unexpected at this location (low elevation and atypical habitat), but unmistakeable; this was working through the riparian trees along the river close to Kingfisher Pond, mostly at medium heights in large cottonwoods--a mostly gray, active warbler with a rather long tail, moving quickly and flicking its tail like a Wilson's. The bird was whitish on the underparts, without contrasting markings on the body, wings or tail, except for a contrasting white rump that was visible at some angles; the face pattern was distinctive, with a very red face, forehead, throat, and sides of the neck (strong line of contrast with the gray body and white breast), and with a black crown patch that continued down through the auriculars, tapering to a point (making a black stripe through the red); watched for several minutes in good, open views, but it moved elsewhere by the time I got my camera out; I did not hear any vocalizations while we were watching it
