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!
