Chiricahua and Santa Rita Mountains, October 2014

On the way back to the Canyon by way of San Diego, Anne and I detoured to Southeast Arizona for some old friends and birds.

California’s Coastal Western Scrub-Jay




A Black Phoebe that was imitating a Vermillion Flycatcher, which should not be possible




A quorum of Killdeer




San Diego County’s very first ever Neotropical Cormorant with local Doubles




Band-tailed Pigeon of the Chiricahuas




And the Mexican Jay




















The biggest Black Bear I have ever seen, and it happened to be in Southeast Arizona!












The famous Mexican Chickadee, finally!
