Florida Canyon, Montosa Canyon, Amado Pond

A fantastic day in the Santa Rita Mountains, with 82 species.

Florida Canyon:
One RUFOUS-CAPPED WARBLER in the same area I saw them last week, quite a long way up canyon beyond the oak grove. Another one buzzed around us for a minute lower down, between the oak grove and the east bend.
Birding from a half mile before the parking lot up to the warbler site was productive, with GRAY HAWK, COSTA’S HUMMINGBIRD, NORTHERN BEARDLESS-TYRANNULET, WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE, HAMMOND’S, DUSKY, PACIFIC-SLOPE, and BROWN-CRESTED FLYCATCHERS, BELL’S, PLUMBEOUS, CASSIN’S, HUTTON’S, and WARBLING VIREOS, SWAINSON’S THRUSH, BLACK-THROATED GRAY and TOWNSEND’S WARBLERS, LINCOLN’S SPARROW, HEPATIC, SUMMER, and WESTERN TANAGERS, BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK, LAZULI BUNTING, and HOODED ORIOLE.
