Hi birders: A beautiful day today in Patagonia; just about as perfect conditions as one could hope for; at least as far as sitting around and looking at birds.

Perhaps, somewhat surprisingly, the most common sighting of hummingbird was the Violet crowned at feeder Z. Anna's were around, and I saw one Broad billed while there, but the Violet crowned was the most faithful.

A nice sighting were several Summer Tanagers, and a Western in the trees towards the drainage. Close inspection revealed a lot of insects being consumed.

Sparrows were abundant in the brush piles; Rufous winged, and White crowned mostly, but the odd Lincoln's as well, along with Abert's Towhee. Only warbler seen was Audubon's, but they were numerous. Woodpeckers were the usual Gila, and Ladder backed. Turkey Vultures were observed overhead. Cheers, Thor
