Fifteen intrepid birders showed up at my house at 7:15 this morning. We explored the piñon/juniper forest and some cottonwood and aspen areas along a stream.
The following is the list of 19 species we saw:
Sharp-shinned hawk – juvenile
Broad-tailed Hummingbird – including one on a nest
Red-naped SapSucker – nest in a tree, two adults and lots of noise from the chicks in the aspen tree
Cordilleran Flycatcher – nest also on top of our bat house
Red-breasted Nuthatch – heard
