Black Throated Grey Warbler
White Winged Dove
Ladder Backed Woodpecker
Vermillion Flycatcher (An absolute JEWEL Of a bird)
Ash Throated Flycatcher
On our Way back, a stop at a very friendly/quirky gas station in Sonorite produced a Curve Billed Thrasher nest building
We chose to take a dirt road through the canyon to get back to Madera, called Madera Canyon road. Good area for birding, but unfortuneately popular for ATV'ers as well. I saw a Loggerhead Shrike (my nemisis bird for 4 years now... I got him!) duking it out with a Cactus Wren. Excellent.
At night at our campground you could hear an Elf Owl (which during nesting season you can also apparently see) and a Western Screech Owl.
