While standing near the benches along the de Anza Trail in Tubac at 11:27 today, the continuing Elegant Trogon gave me a flyby, heading north, just above water level and below where I was standing. The bird continued on north about 20 yards and then appeared to land in some thick bushes on the east side of the river. Five of us looked for the next 30 minutes but could not re-find it. These benches are south of the now-famous Sinaloa Wren spot and the bird has been seen in this same area on three of the past four days. I also saw my first Gray Hawk of the season along this stretch of trail.
My dogs and I spent the 9 o'clock hour at the Tubac dog park within Ron Morriss Park this morning. 4 Common Black Hawks and a Zone-tailed passed overhead during that time. (As of 10 am today, Peter Collins and the other dedicated folks at the Hawk Watch are already over 40 Black-Hawks counted this season and the peak days are still to come :)
