DSA 2016 Day 2

Tuesday 7/12: Up early and out to Corn Creek. Couldn’t find the thrasher spot on the way in, but got Lucy’s Warbler stepping out of the car. Looped around a bit with Pale-faced Clubskimmer, my first Flame Skimmers, and a few other goodies. Flycatchers and hummingbirds baffled me a bit, although I’m fairly sure the hummers were all Black-chinned. On the way out, a couple juvenile Black-throated Sparrows were nice.

Next stop was Floyd Lamb State Park. Typical pond odes and birds, but a nice stop for a few minutes.

Off to Utah. Very few birds on the road. A brief stop in Arizona at the Virgin River campground had more confusing flycatchers and White-belted Ringtails, a major target. Got into Hurricane and grabbed Subway (partially for lunch tomorrow) before a brief meetup with the group.
