Can you id all these birds? Ok, most of them are easy …
Baltimore Oriole at Sweetwater Wetlands (one of the few rarities that I didn’t dip on)
Female Blue Grosbeak at the San Pedro House. Late, real late …
A poor shot of a Chipping Sparrow
Clark’s Grebe at the Bill Williams River NWR
This is a male Common Ground-Dove. The scaling is quite muddled on this pink. The bi-colored bill rules out Ruddy.
Both Common Ground-Doves (female on the left) together now
One of a few Costa’s Hummingbirds at the feeders at the Bill Williams River NWR visitor center. They are VERY reliable there.
This banded Curve-billed Thrasher was at the San Pedro House visitor center
An Eastern Meadowlark in the San Rafael Valley
Green Heron at Sweetwater Wetlands
This Green-tailed Towhee was at the San Pedro House visitor center. He was really close, but hard to get a picture of.
Hard to believe, but this is a LeConte’s Thrasher at the Thrasher Spot at Baseline & Salome Hwy
Lesser Goldfinch (the dark-backed kind)
Hmmm, is the belly white or just gray? The outline of the ear coverts, throat and cheek suggests Eastern Bluebird.
There were a few Gray-headed Juncos around. This one is not clean as evidenced by the brown tones on the flank and on the crown. The bill is not bicolored, so Red-backed is out of the question.
Pink-sided Junco (darker lores and lighter throat)
There were many Pyrrhuloxias at the San Pedro House
Stakeout Red-breasted Sapsucker at McCormick Park. Male daggetti? The markings on the back are pretty extensive.
Tarantula at the San Pedro House
Vermilion Flycatchers at different spots
This surely looks like a Western Bluebird to me … Now the belly is gray, not white.
And a Western Grebe
Finally, another stakeout from McCormick Park: A young Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
