    Comments: These birds were seen perched on dry prosopis branches and the Acacia trees all along the margin of the Percolation tank. They afforded excellent views and were very confiding. On one bush, I counted as many as 13 birds at a particular period. Wondering if this could be a prelude to migration. Some birds were actively feeding from flowers (nectar?) and leaves. Mzany were just sitting quietly. No signs of territorial rivalry.

  35. Number observed: 2

    Comments: Along with the Booted warblers (see above), there were at least two birds that were greyer above, longer-billed and looked somewhat longer-tailed. They were chasing one another and appeared active. Call note also distinct.
