Mt Lemmon

A day on Mt Lemmon, with more outstanding spring birding in SE Arizona.

Catalina Highway, Tucson:
Pair of PURPLE MARTINS on overhead wires.

Molino Canyon:
WESTERN SCRUB-JAY at a roadside pullout a short way down hill.

Incinerator Ridge Road:
Pair of OLIVE WARBLERS (first-summer male and female).
Multiple RED-FACED WARBLERS.
Still a few RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS, plus singing BLACK-THROATED GRAY, GRACE’S and YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS, migrant TOWNSEND’S WARBLERS and HAMMOND’S FLYCATCHERS, and frenzied PAINTED REDSTARTS, as were at most stops.

Summerhaven:
ORANGE-CROWNED, WILSON’S and three VIRGINIA’S WARBLERS between the main Summerhaven parking lot and the Cookie Cabin. We didn’t detect any Evening Grosbeaks during our brief search.

Rose Canyon Lake:
Despite being mid afternoon, we finally rustled up a nice BUFF-BREASTED FLYCATCHER somewhere along the road (can’t remember exactly where) after failing at the amphitheater.
Yet more OLIVE WARBLERS were calling. The PINE SISKINS were getting frisky and may stay for the summer, which they did last year at this site.
