This is a great outing to observe Lawrence’s Goldfinch in close proximity. Nesting Black Phoebe, Mourning Dove and Violet-green and Tree swallows as well as bathing Northern Rough Winged Swallows are typical. Ash-throated Flycatchers and Western Kingbirds are common; Willow Flycatchers and Olive-sided Flycatchers have been seen on several outings as well. Bullock’s Oriole, Western Tanager and Lazuli Bunting are all possible colorful additions. Come join us for a visit to this less visited part of Deer Creek Hills Preserve.
