I've never been birding down south or before, so this weekend my wife and I did a whirlwind tour. First highlight on Saturday was a Black-and-white Warbler at Miller's Rest Stop. Also had a nice look at an Olive-sided Flycatcher with a Western Wood-pewee a few feet away for comparison. At Pahranagat we found a pair of Brown-crested Flycatchers (lifer for me) and a swarm of Yellow Warblers. Yesterday's highlights were an American Redstart at Floyd Lamb Park and a Lucy's Warbler (another lifer) at Corn Creek. We spent last night in Tonopah and did the Dyer-Lida loop this morning. Seems a bit late, but there was a flock of Cedar Waxwings at the Tonapah Cemetery. Not a lot of birds anywhere, but we found a Swainson's Thrush at the Sage Hen Road trees and a Prairie Falcon on a telephone pole near dyer. At Dyer pond we found a female Grosbeak which I think was a Rose-breasted. It was very close but in some dense branches and I didn't get a clear view of the
breast. However, its bill was very pale, with upper and lower mandibles identical.
