Elf Owls and Western Screech Owls are calling each evening and can be reliably spotted in their chosen nest cavities at sundown and early morning.
Our yard birds include 6 species of hummingbirds so far: Blue Throated, Magnificent, Broad-Tailed, Broad-Billed, Rufous & Black Chinned. We're still hoping to see a Calliope. Yesterday we saw an Osprey over Portal/Paradise Road at Cave Creek Road. On it's way north, it didn't stick around, just passing through.
We've been hiking a lot, trying to get back into shape after our sedentary winter.
Hooded and Scott's Orioles have arrived, but haven't seen a Bullock's yet. Each day brings something new.
