Summer Birds Davis Mountains

Here is a slide show of the birds we saw on our June trip to Davis Mountains State Park. We once again hoped to see the Montezuma Quail and were once again disappointed. We did, however, see a number of Phainopepla which were also on our target list.

Some June Backyard Birds

I propped up some dead branches near the house and, with my camera setup inside the house, took pictures of backyard birds as they landed on the branches.

The other new resident this year has been a Canyon Wren which hops around between high spots on the roof, shed, antennas, etc. singing his unique song.
