    Comments: This was something interesting for me. Way out in the Canyon Trail, about 2 miles south of the main preserve area, I came across my first ever in the wild Raven's Nest. It was way up on a cliff face and I watched as a parent raven brought food into two young Ravens who were still in the nest.

  26. Number observed: 1

    Comments: Surprisingly this one was over 2 miles out on the Canyon Trail hanging around with a few Phainopeplas.

  27. Number observed: 12

    Comments: Almost all out on the Canyon Trail, most out almost a mile or so and more as I headed further south on the trail.

  28. Number observed: 25

    Comments: There were quite a few of them on the Canyon Trail, especially down in the more desert portion of the trail.

  29. Number observed: 75

    Comments: This was one of the surprises of the day. As I said in the intro, I came across a huge migration flock of them about 1 mile down in the Canyon Trail all heading north toward the main preserve area. That group was at least 65 or so of this total.

    I looked closely through the group looking for any Lawrence's Goldfinches or American Goldfinches. I did not see any of them. In the huge migration flock, one interesting observation was that there were no more than 7 or 8 clearly male ones. Most of them seemed to be females or perhaps juveniles.

  30. Number observed: 3

    Comments: Way out on the canyon Trail.

  31. Number observed: 1

    Comments: What a turn if events, a "DAD" (dime a dozen) species becoming rare. It was about 3/4 miles out on the Canyon Trail. It was very cooperative for photos. I'm not adding any here as the species is obvious by sight.
