Graham, the House Wren and the Hermit Thrush. Both species were fairly common at the various campsites and the House Wrens were all very vocal and active while the Hermit Thrushes would be somewhere near by in shady areas hoping around searching for food. The photo below is another young fledged bird.
The last photo is one that I wish I could have captured better as this was a new life bird for me; a Greater Pewee. We had heard one of these birds calling in the distance. They have a very unique call which many birders describe as 'Jose, Jose Maria'. If that sounds odd, just follow this link to the Cornell Ornithology web site and play the song and I think you will get the idea. http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Greater_Pewee/id
Love this 'Sky Island' in the desert and you can bet that I will return when the heat of the desert gets a bit unbearable.
