Chiricahua Mtns.--Whitetail Canyon

Owner Rick Taylor

  • 3

With Lynne Taylor & Barbara Bickel. Canyon swathed in fog in morning, Overnight low was 46 degrees F.; high was 56 degrees. First hour of observations were from inside our home. After Barbara Bickel saw the Wood Thrush several times, we all moved to the back porch--about 10' closer to the fountain and without a glass window to distort photos. Unfortunately the Wood Thrush never reappeared, but 3 other thrush species did, and all of the hummingbirds except for the continuing female Lucifer. All hummingbird photos in this report came from outside on the back porch.
