Comments:
Went to check on Becard nests north of bridge. "Trail" is very overgrown with foliage, downed trees, and debris; and washes are quite muddy. So, backtracked and went around - bushwhacking using GPS waypoints from earlier this summer. After 20-30 minutes at each nest, did not see any birds near them. I heard chittering high in canopy by orange plastic cover that might have been the Becards and saw one briefly at the top of a cottonwood that looked like the female or juvenile but not confident enough to add to list. Three Bunting morning.
